our first moss terrarium
I have been itching to make a moss terrarium ever since I found the perfect jar for one. I just wasn't sure where I was going to get moss from. As a surprise Christmas present, Ryan brought me home some moss today! I still needed some rocks, so we went out an picked up some rocks and some activated carbon (to help keep it clean). We only needed a tiny bit of soil for the terrarium so we "borrowed" some from one of our plants. The moss comes dormant, dried out, so we layered it all and then moistened the moss by spraying it with a little water. We had so much fun making this one together that we can't wait to make another. We just want to see how this one turns out first. Here's what we came up with! Now we're looking for the perfect animal, gnome, or mushrooms to live in our comfy terrarium. :)
