I love having green all around me, especially when I’m indoors. That’s why I have a succulent terrarium in every single room in my house! Terrariums are indoor gardens that are remarkably easy to care for especially when you find the right plants that work for you. In this DIY, we used cacti and succulents because they require some light, like a sunny window or partially sunny window, and only need water once or twice a month.

Here is a super easy step by step guide to building your own succulent terrarium or glass terrarium.

Place your terrarium near a sunny window and water once or twice a month. Let your plants dry out in between waterings. Succulents will start to look sunken in when they’re dehydrated. Look for visible signs to know when to water. Feed every three to six months. Always feel free to comment below if you have questions.
