By this point, snow days, freezing temperatures and wading through slush have made it seem like winter will never end. Don’t worry — spring will come. Until then, try making this simple terrarium. Water it once a month and it will bring new life to your residence hall.
-small cactus or other succulent plant
-decorations, such as stones, beads or shells (optional)
Step 1: Place a layer of pebbles at the bottom of the jar for drainage purposes.
Step 2: Place soil into the jar. Use as much or as little as desired, as long as there is enough to hold the cactus in place.
Step 3: Dig a hole in the soil for the cactus and plant it. To secure the cactus, pat down the soil around it. Using a spoon or other tool will help protect your fingers from the prickles.
Step 4: Place decorations on the top of the soil. Drizzle a bit of water on your terrarium and enjoy.
