1. Place a small layer of rocks at the bottom of your container. This will help soil drainage and will ensure that the roots of your plants don’t drown in any excess water.
  2. Add a layer of charcoal approximately 2cm thick.
  3. Fill the container with potting soil up to half way.
  4. Place your plants in the soil. Ensure that you pat down the soil around your plant so they don’t get uprooted.
  5. Add some decorative pebbles or any other fun decorative things. Now you have yourself an awesome terrarium!
