Brandy snifter terrarium: input?

kaitifer(7)April 20, 2008

So I decided to make a tiny terrarium today.

I have been thinking about it for quite a while, and have nearly gone mad to do it. I scrounged up all the materials I had and put together this liddle terrarium. It's in a brandy snifter (see below), with drainage material, a layer of charcoal, peat moss, then potting soil The tiny flower pot is also filled with dirt, then I put in one of my violet babies (which should stay pretty small, as it is a semi-mini), along with some moss I have been scavenging from around my garden.

Just wondering if anyone would anticipate any problems with the setup I have created?

Any input is appreciate, I know many of y'all have been doing this longer and on a larger scale than myself.

Thanks!

You may want to get some saran wrap to cover the top or find a cool clear lid for it to help keep in the humidity.

Cute! Keep us posted as to how it goes

You might be able to forego a cover as long as you don't mind watering more often.
