Create your own epic-inspired mini-worlds
A special note to all black thumbs out there: Even if you and the force aren't so strong these days, know that succulents are practically indestructible. Very similar to a cactus, succulents only ask for a few drops of water once a month and are surprisingly disease-resistant. Even sunlight is negotiable.
-Glass jar (with or without lid)
-Princess Leia action figure
-Wicket Ewok action figure
-Medium-brown pebbles (usually available at craft or aquarium stores)
-Potting or container soil
-Succulent plants or fern (at least 1 and as many as you want)
-Moss (most likely found at a garden supply store)
-Small piece of tree branch (slightly smaller than jar's diameter)
3. Add about an inch of pebbles to the bottom of the jar and then a thin layer of charcoal. The pebbles promote better drainage, preventing the plants from sitting in too much water, which could lead to mold or rot.
For Tattoine Terrarium:
Substitute honey-colored pebbles for the brown pebbles, honey-colored sand for soil and a Luke Skywalker action figure for Princess Leia and Wicket.
For Hoth Terrarium:
Substitute white pebbles for the brown pebbles, white sand for soil and white rocks, white quartz and coral for succulents. Even though Hoth is a barren ice planet, you can still add a plant to the terrarium via a white or pale-colored air plant.
