The Basics provides you with all the materials you need to make a medium sized open terrarium. You can get instructions and see a video on how to make a DIY succulent terrarium in our blog article. You might also like to decorate the surface of your terrarium with some of our Multicolored Gemstones or Decorative Sand. Please keep in mind that The Basics is meant for open terrariums that hold succulents and cacti and not wet or closed terrariums. It basically has stuff that’s suited to desert plants. ;)

Each bundle includes:

  • 1 lb. potting soil blend
  • 14 oz. Jet black pebbles for drainage
  • 1 oz. Activated charcoal to keep drained water clean
  • 8″ Divider sheet to separate soil from drainage
  • 6″ Sheet of preserved moss to use as decorative ground cover
  • A cute little blank note card with instructions on the back

    This is everything you need to plant succulents and keep them alive. What you get is so much cheaper and higher quality than ordering each component individually.
