A couple of wide mouthed glass vases. Bubble vases (fish bowls) work well, large cylinders work well, just make sure they are wide mouthed. Succulents don't wanna be trapped in humid air.
A few succulents. Easy to get at any garden store. Small ones in 4" pots.
Cactus and tropical mixed potting soil.
A bag of small pebbles.
A bag of decorative white rocks, or white sand looks nice too.
Fill the bottom of the vases with the small pebbles, about 1 1/2'' - 2" deep. This is to create drainage in your vase, since there isn't a hole in the bottom.
Cover the top layer with decorative rocks. I chose white because I like the modern look of the finished pieces. Red rocks or black river pebbles would look great too! Enjoy your $10, I mean your $75 dollar terrarium! Happy planting!
