- a clear glass vessel
- potting soil
- small pebbles and rocks
- activated charcoal (in fish section of a pet store)
- small bowl
- waterproof glue
- miniature figures (n scale railroad figures)
- squirt bottle
Start with a 1-2-inch layer of any color decorative rock to ensure proper drainage (image 1). Next, add a 1/2-inch layer of charcoal to keep mold from growing (image 2). Add as many inches of soil as your vessel allows. The soil should not reach higher than 3 inches from the top edge of the vessel. Create mountains and valleys with the soil using a spoon (image 3).
Moisten the Moss
Soak the moss in a water filled bowl (image 1), and give the soil a few squirts of water to moisten (image 2). Squeeze out the extra water (image 3).
Add the moss to the terrarium, and use a spoon to create hills and valleys.
