Bring the outside in and craft a cute terrarium. By Lindsay Stetson Thompson.
High-end home design magazines often feature interesting (and expensive) containers filled with artfully arranged succulents. Luckily for your pocketbook, the concept is easy to replicate at home. Even the most forgetful plant killer can keep this no-fuss terrarium alive. Just don’t fight back if you get pricked.
If you’re giving the terrarium as a gift—or even if you just want a reminder for yourself—create a tag with care instructions specific to the succulents you’ve planted.
Be sure to include their requirements for sun and how often they need water.

You Will Need
Pour enough rocks into your container to make a layer 1
approximately 2 ?2" deep. Carefully pour in a 1" to 11?2" layer of charcoal.
Add a layer of soil thick enough to reach slightly higher than the midpoint of your container.
Arrange the succulents to your liking. Plant them and
gently pack down the soil all around them.
Add decorations (if you wish) to personalize the landscape. That’s it!
