Terrarium layers

  • Step 1 - Coarse Gravels

Drainage for excess water in the terrarium.


  • Step 2 - ​Sphagnum Moss

Put a layer of sphagnum moss layer to separate soil away from gravels. This is the brownish furry looking - preserved moss.


  • Step 3 - Soil

Put in an estimate of 2 to 3 cm of potting mix/soil. This will be the medium for the plants to grow.
In the middle of the soil layer, you can put a layer of colour sand at the periphery of the layer.


  • Step 4 - Plants

In our terrarium packages, we use two different types of plants for two different category of terrariums
Closed Terrarium - Fittonias (Nerve plants) & live mosses.
Open Terrarium - Cactus & Succulents, Reindeer mosses.

Add the plants in with a chopstick or a tweezer.


  • Step 5 - Decorations

Decorate the top with stones or gravels. Top it up with a figurine and you're good to go!
