This was attempt #2. A fun day on the deck in the shade.
|Mixing dirt and rocks.|
|What up snail!|
|Layer of carbon on the rocks.|
|Dry sphagnum moss.|
|The ferns in the background will go into glass enclosures with lids & some moss.|
|Instead of backyard moss this time and tackling random bugs and grasses|
I soaked this cleaned mood moss from Pottery Barn.
|Bath for the moss with distilled water.|
|Soak the top by letting it float.|
|Then submerge briefly.|
|Squeeze out and let sit a bit while prepping the containers.|
|Ah, if only could float on a boat of moss on a lazy afternoon.|
|Learn your moss types|
|Sizing up the moss for the jar.|
|Judging space for the snail, the wild ginger will go in front.|
|Hopefully these ginger will come back.|
|Ginger jar with ferns and moss close-up view.|
|From above, two ferns and some mosses.|
|At home in the living room... |
will post more of the final terrariums completed later.............
