Resilient Terrariums

Create a beautiful and resilient terrarium as a family that you will enjoy for months to come. Succulent plants need very little water or tending, and yet they thrive—a great example of resilience.


  • A glass vessel that can house several plants
  • Small gravel
  • Potting soil
  • Water
  • Small Succulent plants
  • Small rocks


Place a thin layer of gravel in the bottom of your glass vessel. Then add a thicker layer of soil. Lightly moisten the soil with water—do not flood the soil. The gently succulent plants, then decorate with small rocks. Then find your favorite window and allow your terrarium to thrive in the sunlight. Once a week, lightly spray your terrarium with water and then enjoy!
