Since I started Terrarium Tuesday, I have been waiting to feature these Lightbulb Terrariums! Of all the terrariums that I have made or even seen, this is by far my favorite.
I start these with a layer of activated charcoal which is used to purify water and keeps the lightbulb environment cleaner longer. Soil is added followed by 2 or 3 succulent cuttings. I use sempervivum and jovibarba cultivars, picked for their small size. There is a huge range of sizes in these two succulents, so picking varieties that remain small when mature is very important.
After a week or two, the succulent cuttings are rooted. In the one above, I added a top dressing of sand a small sea shell and florist’s moss. They are so unique and interesting. Their small size makes them perfect for an office window or really anywhere!
We sell these for $12.00 and if interested, contact us or stop by The Smiling Turtle Art Spot in Omaha to see them in person. I hope you have a wonderful week!
