I still heart succulent terrariums

How's this for procrastination? I wrote this post back in January about how much I love succulent terrariums. I even gave lots of good tips to create your own, but guess what? I didn't have one in my house until just a week or so ago!

Glad I got my act together, because this is how they turned out...


A trip to the big orange store, along with a trip to Hobby Lobby for the containers and I was set. All ready to plant...

Making sure to layer rocks will help with proper draining. I cleaned out the sole's of Reed's tennis shoes and had just enough rocks to pull of this project! Just kidding, but we did make a trip to the playground to borrow a scoop or two.

I varied each layer of rocks and dirt just for fun, then added in the plants.

If they grow much, I'll definitely need to replant. But for now, I love how they fit just right in their new little homes.



Anyone want to take bets on if I'll still have these little fellas around in another 6 months? I'll try my best. My fiddle leaf fig trees are doing great so maybe I just needed the motivation of having plants in our house that I truly love, to make me turn in my black thumbs for a shade closer to green!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, they're so fun, love your creative layering. I've heard you're not supposed to water them hardly at all!

I love these succulents! I plan on incorporating them into my wedding bouquet. I'm thinking these individual succulents would make great favors or place setting decor. Were the individual plants very expensive?

Haha, glad to see you finally got around to making terrariums of your own! Love the different layering of the stones – one even looks like a sandwich, hehe! Great choice for the plants as well – open-air succulents are some of the easiest plants to take care of, since they don’t require a lot of water. It’s just a matter of regularly opening them up to dry out a bit. Good luck with these!
