Hi,
I haven't posted in forever because I was finishing school but now I have time yay! I've been making terrariums lately, and I wanted some feedback:

I hope you like it Smiley It's washed sand, moss, and a tillandisa. I want to try making more terrariums with succulents or other rooted plants, but I'm concerned about drainage. Also is it possible to grow succulents in just sand or should I mix with soil? Thanks for any and all feedback!

You could use airplants then you don't have to worry about it. Smiley

I think you can just by a mix especially for succulents at home depot. I was just these looking at orchid stuff and I'm 99% sure I saw something for them!

Add a lot of gravel to the bottom of the jar and you may have to keep the lid off to keep the moisture down in a dessert themed terrarium. There is also (a word that alludes me) a type of growing that is more like a topless and flat terrarium that is good for succulents. Nice work. Good luck.
