Seeds Planted + Quick and Dirty DIY Terrarium
I've finally planted all my seeds, and am watering away, hoping things will grow (and that I won't forget to water them --this is a real concern, I can be tres forgetful and seeds sure don't like that!)
While I was planting, I figured I'd get all the messy bits out of the way, and make a few terrariums out of some materials I've been collecting for awhile.
-Glass jar with a lid
-some moss (I dug some up, dirt and all on a recent nature hike)
-small decorations (pine cones, pebbles, small decorations)
1. Place Stones on the bottom of the Glass container
2. Place Moss on top
3. Arrange decorations on top
4. Replace lid
Care: Mist with a bit of water once a week
So far, my terrariums look pretty cute, though seem to be suffering from a bit of a condensation problem. I'm guessing this is likely to do with why people often use the pebbles with activated charcoal in them to suck up the moisture, but I'll wait and see how it goes before I decide if I should replace the stones.
But all in all, I'm super happy with how they turned out and how they look on the windowsill! Not sure why I put off making them for so long--this was a super instant gratification project- my favourite kind!
