- Sheet moss
- Cushion moss
(Make sure you buy from a reputable source that harvests moss in a responsible way.)
Other Materials and Tools
- Glass vessel with opening (a cylinder vase or Mason jar could work)
- Spray mister
- Activated charcoal pieces (available in the aquarium section of a pet shop)
- Decorative pebbles (aquarium pebbles work well)
- Extra-long tweezers or tongs
- Extra-large cotton swab
- Medicine dropper
- Architectural model tree (or any other accessories you’d like to place in your terrarium)
4. Add a layer of charcoal with the spoon, aiming to just cover most of the moss below. The charcoal will act as a filter and prevent any moisture in the terrarium from developing an unpleasant smell.
Now your terrarium’s base layers are set.
6. Completely moisten your piece of cushion moss with the mister, as you did with the sheet moss. Wring out any excess water.
You can leave the cushion moss as a larger piece if you like or break it into smaller pieces to create more of a landscape scene in the terrarium. Wait until after you moisten the moss to break it apart, as it will be more malleable and less messy.
12. Clean the terrarium, using the paintbrush or an extra-large cotton swab to get rid of any dust, smudges or dirt that accumulated during the project.
