LIGHT BULB TERRARIUM

Give a lush look to the interiors of your den with these comprehensive light bulb terrarium how-tos. The eco-friendly projects contribute towards purifying the ambient air owing to the self-sufficient closed ecosystem.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR LIGHT BULB TERRARIUM

What you’ll need

  • 1 lightbulb
  • 1 pair of long tweezers
  • 2 tablespoons of sand
  • A small handful of preserved moss
  • A small handful of reindeer moss
  • A tillandsia (air plant) or Venus fly traps, Pitcher plants, Sundew plants.
  • Small rocks or coloured glass stones

WHAT TO DO

If you really want to make your light bulb terrarium from scratch, you can simply use an old light bulb and clear it out by yourself. But when we say that this will probably involve shards of broken glass and you’ll need to wear protective glasses, you might prefer to take the easy option and buy an ornamental bulb that’s already been prepped.

1. Put two tablespoons of sand into the light bulb. You can buy this from a garden centre. If you’re taking it directly from the beach, be sure to dry it thoroughly first.

2. Place the preserved moss into the bulb and distribute over the sand with the tweezers.

3. Repeat with the reindeer moss.

4. Place your tillandsia or carnivorous  plant inside the bulb.

5. Arrange the rocks or glass pebbles around the plant.

To keep your terrarium in tip-top condition, spritz once a week with a water spray.

TIP FOR KIDS: Terrariums are great little miniature gardens children can enjoy. Make them even more fun by adding a tiny tiny toy animal.
