This cute tiny terrarium was the answer to a question I’ve been asking myself for years… what on earth am I going to do with my ittie bittie retro pink syrup dispenser? It’s not like I stayed up all night worrying about it but every time I opened a certain cabinet the question came up and I scolded myself for spending 7 dollars on something that sits in a cabinet!
But last winter when I fell in love with adding plants to my living space, every vessel in the house was fair game for becoming a planter 🙂
I found the tiniest plants, meant for terrariums, at a local Nursery and had the idea to do a tiny terrarium in my little pink syrup dispenser!
Using the same elements I used for my larger terrarium (the DIY Closed Terrarium posted HERE), I put together this little one. Just layer a few small rocks in the bottom, a bit of charcoal and a bit of potting soil then tuck a portion of the tiny plant. (I had to separate the plant, taking just a small amount of root and foliage…)
I added a pebble and a pinch of spagham moss to the top. Every few days the glass fogs up so I take the top off and let it air out for a few hours…
*** Fast forward 6 weeks***
I wanted to make sure this tiny terrarium thrived before I showed it to you. And boy did it! withing a few weeks this girl grew so I was having to fold the leaves down to get the top on! So I transplanted her to my large terrarium where she’s ever-so happy 🙂
And I planted a bit of moss in the little syrup dispenser!
