Mason Home Decor DIY Terrarium kit Review

 



Want to make your own Terrarium?

Over the NDP long weekend, we received a box of DIY Terrarium kit from Masons Home Decor. It came just in time for us as a stay at home activity to do while we celebrate National Day at home.

What is a Terrarium?


A terrarium is a glass container that contains a mix of soil and plants. Open terrarium that Masons Home Decor retails are suited for plants that prefer less humidity and soil moisture. 

What's inside the box?


The package arrived in a big box. Inside the box are 
A set of Shovels
  • 1 Spray Bottle
  • 3 Assorted bags of Decorative Pebbles
  • 2 Glass Jars
  • 1 Bag of Terrarium Mix
  • 4 Succulents


While our package comes with 4 succulents, the DIY kit from Mason will have 9 succulents provided


Here are 3 easy steps to create your own DIY Terrarium 

Step 1: Place Small pebbles a the base of the jar.


As you will be planting succulents, these plants require less water and much more drainage. With a small layer of rocks, water can be drained out. This will ensure that rots will not rot for the succulent.

Step 2: Place a layer of Terrarium Mix

The premium terrarium mix provide in the kit is next. Place it over the layer of rocks. Use, the shovels to even things out for the next step.

Step 3: Fill the jar halfway with soil and put plants in it. 
Decorate it any way you want.

Next is the succulents. You need to take it out of the mini pot before placing it in. Make sure the roots are not more than 2 cm ( 0.5 cm to 1 cm is sufficient ) when you place them in the soil. Give space between the plants to allow them to grow healthy. Bury the roots so they will not rot out. 



Once the roots are planted, you can add decorative rocks or even miniature toys or figurines to add a personal touch.

We completed 2 bowls of Terrarium within the hour. This is a therapeutic activity that a parent and child can do together.



The terrarium DIY kit can be purchase from Mason Home Decor.



Each set retails for $111.30. While it is not exactly 'cheap' but it would be more worth it than getting 2 individual Terrarium. Besides, making one for yourselves beats buying it off the shelves.
