Terrariums are hot right now! They look so cool that people often think they must be difficult to make or care for. Not true!! By the way, did you know Rouvalis offers workshops? That's right! We bring the supplies, the plants and the knowledge. You bring your friends, colleagues or bridesmaids (...and wine...).
Here's a quick tutorial-
-Glass container, could be a sphere, hurricane shape or fancy hot house like above.
-Soil and something for drainage is recommended, stones, sand, broken pottery. Charcoal pieces are great because they also detoxify.
-Decor- moss, stones, cork, wood slices, marbles, maybe some of those super cool fairy garden pieces (tiny doors, tables, chairs, etc)
-Plants- ferns, orchids, small low light foliage plants, succulents work very well and are easy to care for.
Fill the base of your container with a layer of drainage medium, next add a layer of soil. Now start placing the plants. I usually start with the biggest and work around it. If you are using cut succulents those should be placed after moss. Once your plants are in place cover your soil with moss and add in whatever decor you have. Maybe some sea glass? Add your cut succulents and Voila!! Maintenance will differ slightly depending on the plants you chose. Generally bright indirect light is a safe choice. Terrariums should be watered lightly once a week, we recommend using a mister. Foliage plants will require a bit more water than succulents. Be careful not to soak the succulent leaves as it can cause rot.
Easy right?.... Well, maybe you should just have us show you. Book your workshop today!
