If the container you use is smaller you can hang it to create a hanging terrarium in your home that will also be a great decoration for every corner of the house.
Pick a container and spread a layer of charcoal, gravel, or pumice on the bottom of the container for drainage. Add enough potting mix to surround plant roots. Then, gently settle the root ball into the soil, and firm it into place. Add more soil if needed. Plant succulents or cacti because they can live in these conditions where they do not have to be overwatered.
Don’t be afraid to experiment. You can also recycle an old light bulb or a glass tea pot, glass bottle, or every glass or container you can find at home that is big enough to make a small, but very original terrarium for home. So, if you love DIY projects and enjoy making such inspiring green decorative elements for your home these small terrariums will serve you as a great inspiration.
