Succulent Terrarium

succulent terrariumI made a succulent terrarium for our kitchen. I’m hoping I can keep it alive because I have a black thumb when it comes to succulents. Apparently they thrive on neglect, and I over watered them. I also never re-potted them in cactus soil and provided drainage, so maybe that had something to do with it?

I followed this succulent terrarium tutorial from Floral Verde from this pin on Pinterest.  My friend donated her glass bowl and I got to work. I made sure the roots would reach the pebbles so the excess water can drain, and I added the activated charcoal to make sure it won’t start stinking. I watered it with one shot glass of water this week, and I’ve left it alone. I hope I can keep them alive!
