layered rock terrarium

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

On the bottom of an apothecary jar, layer in rock, sand and sea glass pieces. Start with the smallest (sand) and make a full layer on the very bottom approximately 2"-3" [5.1 cm - 7.6 cm] thick. Then add the next smallest rock as a layer, trying to make it the same thickness.

Step 2

Next add the sea glass layer to look like water, again trying to make the thickness close to the other layers.

Step 3

Add a layer of black river rocks on top of the sea glass rocks.
TIP: This layer can be rather thin since this size rock is so large.

Step 4

Using various moss, create a layer on top of the river rocks.
TIP: This layer can be thicker than the rock layers and should be full and billowy looking.

Step 5

Add greenery to the top by pushing the stems in between the moss and into the rock layers to secure them in place.
