Build your own Terrarium
C02106

You will learn how a terrarium works; how these self-contained ecosystems survive so well on their own and how to look after them.

Course Content

We will start with a short introduction explaining the history and science that goes into building a terrarium, from the different plants you can use to why activated charcoal has become an essential for us.

Then it is up to you guys to get your hands in there and build your own!

We will supply you with a terrarium jar which you will fill with various plants ie Fittonia and Ivy and an arrangement of pebbles and moss.

Ask us any questions you have and by the end of the session you will have your own exciting miniature garden to take away and watch develop over the next months and years.

All contents, jar and tools are supplied.
