Step 1: You Will Need:
-A medium glass container
-Activated charcoal (I got mine from the pet store, it comes in a filter)
-Succulents or cactuses (small)
Step 2: Assemble!
Put about 1.5 inches of small stones or pebbles into the container.
Next layer the activated charcoal on top of the stones so that it covers the top of the pebbles completely. It should be a thin layer! This is needed to keep the air recycled and carbon filled for the plants! If you are making an open terrarium you don't need this.
Then layer about 2 inches of potting soil on top of the activated charcoal.
Plant the succulents / cacti in the soil, making sure they are firm in the soil.
Add the decorations and any extra rocks you want. I used a small toy dinosaur and added some rocks to make it feel more homey for the dino :)
