My Mini Terrarium - Sass & Belle*

I’ve had a large terrarium for a few months now which I put 3 small cactai inside. They have been doing really well so when I was offered the chance to receive another terrarium from Sass & Belle I couldn’t wait to go and buy more cactus supplies!

The first thing I did was to add some stones at the bottom of the glass, this helps with drainage so that the cactus doesn’t sit in water. I then added a layer of cactus compost.

Carefully I then took my cactus out of the pot it came in and repotted it into the soil inside the terrarium. I chose a cactus with yellow flowers so that it matches the décor of my living room, however I realised the flowers were glued on and were not real! I still think it looks lovely.

The terrarium arrived safely packaged with lots of bubble wrap and in a nice sized box with fragile tape holding it together. The glass feels sturdy and the terrarium feels of good quality. I am really impressed and I love the size of it. You can of course also put a candle in the terrarium or some fairy lights would also look pretty.

Sass & Belle have been kind enough to offer my readers and followers a discount of 15% when you spend over £20 online with code: christie so you can get your very own terrarium (expires 31/08/16 and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer).

Do you like what I have made? Would you consider creating your own terrarium?
