Here's how to put your own together:
Decorative Items (optional)
You can use anything from a mason jar or small candle holder to a large glass vase or apothecary jar. I found mine at Hobby Lobby, TJ Max, Home Goods, Tai Pan, Dollar Tree, or even thrift stores. You may even have some at your home that will work great! When you have selected your glass jar, I suggest that you take it with you to get your plants. That way you can be sure they will fit, and that you like how they look inside your glass.
You can get river rock from the nursery, Home Depot, or even the dollar store. You can also just have your kids gather some rocks from outside.
Miracle Grow makes a potting soil that is specially formulated for Cacti and Succulents. You can use that, but it is a little more expensive. I chose to use Miracle Grow's Moisture Control Potting Mix. You can use this and you will just need to water less often.
Succulents come in lots of varieties. If you are adding more than one succulent to your terrarium choose ones that are different heights, colors, and textures. Remember groupings are best in odd numbers. Home Depot and Lowes have a selection of succulents, and they can also be found at your local nursery.
