Not too long ago, Josh & I went to the Long Beach Antique Market where I purchased a bunch of succulents to make terrariums. Since the last time I made Beach Themed Terrariums, I still had a large brown paper bag full of supplies needed to make more terrariums. All I really needed was soil, salt crystals, & activated carbon & I was ready to plant!
Putting together a terrarium is very simple as is taking care of them. They’re really low maintenance–unlike a needy significant other–& require little water & a good amount of sunlight. If you’re interested in making your own terrarium, but you don’t know where to start check out my tutorial here. If you’re interested in finding a significant other that relies only on sunlight, water, & love, I’d suggest you try harvesting a PlantSim. They’re not real so, guess you have to deal with human needs like the rest of us!
I decided to pick up some vegetable seeds to plant because my Herbal Terrariums were a bit short lived due to improper care & neglect. This time around, I decided to plant organic beans & San Marzano tomatoes outside. I’ll post up the progress report of those vegetables/fruits in a week or so when they germinate. Hopefully bugs won’t munch on them before they even sprout. I’d be so saddddd. QQ all day. Click the photo below to unfold more pictures of the terrariums I made & the steps I took to make them!
Terrariums make great gifts for anyone who needs a little more green in their home. If you can’t find any succulents, try finding seed packets of herbs to plant instead. Although your gift will seem like a pretty glass bowl with soil in it, you should make sure you let your gift receiver know that in a few days, herbs will sprout! Or if you want to be a jerk, just give them a pretty glass bowl with soil in it & blame them for their inability to grow plant life. Hope all of you have a happy Valentine’s Day/Friday!
