DIY Terrarium Kit from Masons Home Decor

In the past, I've received fully fabricated terrariums from florists.

Recently, Masons Home Decor sent me their huge box of DIY Terrarium Kit, so I can curate the terrarium from scratch to occupy my National Day weekend with my girlfriend.

What's inside:
  • 1 set of shovels
  • 1 spray bottle
  • 3 assorted bags of decorative pebbles
  • 4 assorted succulents
  • 2 miniature ornaments
  • 2 glass jars (1 big and 1 small)
  • 1 bag of premium terrarium mix (soil)

What's missing (as compared to the listed contents on their product page):
  • Welcome note
  • Step by step instructions

It's already upsetting that the step by step instructions are not found anywhere in the box, there are no stickers/labels for the bags as well.

My girlfriend and I had to Google what are the correct steps from the start.

First, we covered the bottom of the glass jar with small rocks, serving as the water drainage layer.

Then, we added a layer of soil (or activated charcoal? I don't know, there's no labeling).

Despite the absence of instruction manual and bag labels, we still manage to create some pretty awesome terrariums (I think?).
