How to create a Jurassic Garden Terrarium
Pop the base layer moss and plug plants in a tray of water and leave aside to soak. Next, wash your glass with soapy water and dry. Rinse and add a thin layer of pebbles to your glass - approx 1cm. This will act as your drainage layer.
Place a very thin layer of charcoal on top of the pebbles - no more than 1cm as we want to leave plenty of room for the plants to grow. This will purify the water as it runs through to the drainage layer.
Remove the base layer moss from the water and give it a squeeze to remove excess water. Place on top of the charcoal - use a wooden tool or your knuckles to flatten it down so that it forms a nice, compact layer.
Put about 1cm of the terrarium potting mix on top of the moss. Pat it down firmly and place the dragon rocks in 2 rough lines leaving a trail in the centre - make sure there are no gaps as they will act as a retaining wall.
To create height, fill up one side of the dragon rocks and create a slope against the glass. Tap down to remove air pockets and keep it slightly firm so that it will hold the plants.
Gently tickle the base of your plug plants to loosen the roots and position them in the slope in your terrarium. Use a brush or piece of sponge to remove excess soil from the top of the dragon rock.
Carefully fill in the gaps with strands of fresh moss.
Carefully pour in and position the sand to create a dragon walkway. Use a spoon or rolled up piece of paper to guide you. Use a brush if available to smooth the sand.
Add the dragons and any decorations you have, pop the lid on and you're now done! Sit back and admire, take a snap and post in our Facebook Group!
