It's like a magical indoor fairy garden for the little ones and an interesting ecological experiment for the older kids
- 1 Old fish tank, ability to hold water not essential
- 1 Bucket of sand
- 1 Peat moss block
- 1 Selection of plants
- Soak your peat moss block in water as directed and mix a little with you sand in approximately a 50-50 ratio.
- Lay a layer of this mix on the bottom of your tank and top with a layer of moss. Plant your selection of plants, epiphytes and ferns do very well in terrariums
- Allow adequate ventilation and light, near a window is perfect and spray with water regularly
You may need a uv light if sunlight is limited, visit a pet shop to find these
