I would like to thank Sofia Date for the awesome video on how to DIY reusing a Mason Jar. I organized it into a wiki for anyone with a hearing impairment, or for those who just prefer to read the steps. Hope you enjoy it. :)
Hi. Today I'm going to show you one way to use a jar as a terrarium.
I am using succulent plants and they don't require a lot of attention.
There are so many different kinds.
I am using these four little ones, there are various types but generally known as Miniature Succulent Plants.
These look a lot smaller.
You're going to need a Jar of your choice, Succulent plants, Soil, Moss, Pebbles and some time.
Your first layer is going to be your Pebbles.
You're just going to plop these into your jar at the very first bottom base, and then once you're done pop them down.
Your second layer is going to be your Moss, I'm using a Spanish Moss, I don't really know if it makes any difference, but this is extremely hard to put a part.
So I am going to be stuffing that as a second layer.
Layer number three is your soil.
Now it time for planting the plant.
When planting the plant you have to be extremely delicate.
I am a kind of just separating and gently pushing away the soil after taking it out of the container.
Also, make a hole to it the soil put it into the jar and paving down the soil around it.
After deciding where to put the plant inside put in some Pebbles on the top.
Just to give it more clean effect.
Now, wipe away all your problems.
