DIY Terrarium with mini orchid


To create a terrarium with a mini orchid, you’ll need the following:

  • Large glass jar
  • Hydrogranules
  • Bark potting soil
  • Mini orchid
  • Other small green plants of your choice
  • Moss


Got everything you need? Then let’s get started! Start with a layer of hydrogranules at the bottom of the glass jar. This ensures proper water management. The granules absorb moisture and release it gradually, allowing the plants to receive the right amount of water over an extended period. On top of this, add a layer of bark potting soil. This type of soil is specifically developed for orchids and is much lighter than regular potting soil. Next, it’s time to plant the mini orchid and green plants. Place the mini orchid in the centre as the focal point, with the green plants surrounding it. Finally, distribute some moss over the soil.
