Today is 2nd days of Chinese New Year 2015. As usual being adults have nothing to do. HA!!! So I decided to take 1 of my custom made glass to made a Terrarium for myself and also evaluate the grow of the plant using Tissue Culture(TC). This type of TC plant is use widely in aquatic plant. I just convert them to terrarium since is easy to handle and ship to my customer that interested in this hobbyist and it’s clean.
First select a glass shape that you going to design. I choice a Tingle Shape Glass. Please refer below picture of material need to prepare.
Starting from the Top(left). 1. Glass , 2. Wet Sphagnum Moss, 3. Big Pebble, 4. Ryu Rock, 5. Dragon Rock, 6. White Sand, 7. Totoro&Goat, 8. Scissor, 9. Straight & Curve Twizzer, 10. TC Plant – Riccia, Glosso, Hair Glass & Alternanthera Reineckii (Mini)
Step 1 – Place Big Pebble on the bottom of the glass & follow by wet sphagnum moss
I use dragon rock for this design because my Ryu rock to big for the glass. I intend to put some wood but no stock such small size. Need to made some restock after CNY. Please refer below arrangement that i have made. Follow by planting TC plant on the wet moss.
Just made sure you gently put down the plant to the wet moss as show on below picture
I use only Glossostigma & Riccia – TC Plant
After complete just spray some water on the glass and plant to get them moisture. Don’t put at direct sunlight please take note. For 3 days just put them on shade area with some flounce light. The best condition is put near the window glass where have sufficient light.
Just spray water everyday to the plant and made sure the bottom moss is wet but not over wet. Base on your own environment and evaluate the number of days before water the moss. Every 2 week need to put some water fertilizer. I think easily get on the plant nursery. I use Baba Organic Indoor Fertilizer.
Hope you all will try it out. Easy to D.I.Y.
