How to Make a Plant Terrarium

Here are my step by step instructions on how to make a plant terrarium with no drainage. Plant terrariums with no drainage require little maintenance - you only need to water every 2 to 3 weeks, or when needed.

Tips:
- Use cardboard box to contain soil, succulents.
- Use old art for scrap paper.
- Use rocks found while hiking for decoration.
- Use soil mixed with pumice and perlite (pumice for absorbing water no drainage and charcoal as purifier).
- Cheap decorations rocks can be found at Dollar Tree for just a $1. (I purchased the white rocks there.)

Total Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Using scissors, cut the base of a plastic cup to fit your terrarium.
  2. Cup height/size will vary depending on your plant terrarium and preference.
  3. Optional - I did not want the red cup to show, so I painted the cups with white acrylic paint and allowed to dry overnight.
  4. Add charcoal rocks, assorted rocks, and soil mixed with pumice and perlite into the plastic cup.
  5. You are ready to make your plant assortment.
  6. Place plant assortment into the terrarium.
  7. Now you are ready to decorate your terrarium. Tip: Use chopsticks to help arrange plant/rocks to your liking.
  8. To finish off, add your choice of decorative rocks, or any rocks you would like to add.
