DIY Bedroom Terrariums

“Terrariums are super-easy to make and incredibly low maintenance,” Peggy Wang writes on BuzzFeed. You’ll need a glass container, pebbles or rocks to cover the bottom, activated charcoal to prevent mold, a layer of potting soil, and the plant(s).

Plants in the bedroom can improve air quality and health, according to Sleep Number’s The Beginner’s Guide to Houseplants. Terrariums channel your crafty spirit, and live long without much water.

For this adorable light bulb terrarium, The Hipster Home blog recommends no soil, and to use plants considered Tillandsia, which are also known as air plants.

“These are a great choice for your tiny terrarium because they take all the nutrients they need from the air and a small amount of water,” says article author Juliette Melton. “No roots means no wet soil, which means no mold.”
