Apothecary Terrarium

If you’re like me…

you probably have a few or ten apothecary jars around the house

home 001

while at the garden center, I happened upon this furry beauty

{Irish Moss}

Here’s how I put it together

in the apothecary goes a base of some small pebbles/rocks

for drainage

and then some potting soil

I used cactus soil here

pop in the plant and


a beautiful

green little terrarium

home 009

mist/sprinkle with water every week or so

and the self contained ecosystem takes care of the rest!

  1. Maybe if I had planted my Iris moss this way instead of outside it would still be alive today .

  2. So pretty! I've always wanted to try and make a terrarium.

  3. I love anything in an apothecary jar! Well done! Thanks for linking up with Lemon Tree Creations today!

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE it !!! What a statement : )

  5. I love this--this would be a great addition to my home. I'm not great with plants but I might just be able to do this. Thanks for joining my linky party this week.

  6. And my Cat can't eat it and puke it! Wonderful idea
