When it comes to houseplants, there are those that neglect and those that pay a little too much attention to them. I tend to drown my houseplants. I don’t mean to – it just happens. Last year, the death toll of houseplants increased dramatically as I committed multiple counts of planticide by way of drowning. The only houseplants I was able to keep alive were my air plants and cactus.
On the way to Home Depot, we discussed Valentine’s Day. We don’t usually give each other gifts, but I always make my husband his favorite dinner and pick up something special for dessert along with a card and maybe some candy. In Home Depot, I picked up marble chips and four succulent plants. I tried to give him money for my plants and marble chips, but declined. He said he just bought my Valentine’s Day gift. I told him I’d try not to kill it.
How to Build a Terrarium
1. Clean your container.
2. Add a layer of sand to the bottom of your container.
3. Mix a good amount of charcoal and pebbles together and add on top of the sand.
4. Add a nice layer of moss.
5. Put down the soil and carefully add your plants.
6. Add a neat layer of pebbles on top of the soil.
7. Lightly water your terrarium.
Succulents are great, low-maintenance houseplants. Their exotic and unusual looks and bright colors will have you thinking warm thoughts in no time!
