Hey all you black thumb peeps! I have a gardening tutorial for you. This desktop succulent terrarium is hard to kill. It requires very little water and loves to be neglected. Best of all, you can put it together in less than 20 minutes!
Ready, set, go…..

- Glass bowl
- Bell cloche terrarium
- Various small succulents
- Potting Soil
- Crushed glass vase filler (found at Michael’s)
- Small shovel
Fill the bottom of the glass bowl with sand and soil mixture. Fill the small jar with a sand and soil mixture. Plant your favorite succulent in the jar.
Fill the glass bowl with more soil, sand and succulents.
Pour crushed glass on top of the soil for color.
I chose to change the finial on my cloche terrarium. It’s just a standard lamp finial. You can purchase a variety of finials in the lighting department at Lowe’s.
The simple finial doesn’t distract from those beautiful succulents!
Water your succulent planter then let it fully dry out before watering again. If the glass fogs, remove the cloche a while since succulents like dry conditions.
