I picked up a few extra terrarium goodies today. While walking the dog I had miniature worlds on the brain and collected some bits and pieces: more moss, a few little rocks (cliffs), interesting sticks (fallen trees/tree roots) and a couple of twisty little twig things.

I had a nosey in the pet shop and found some filter carbon – according to a few websites I’ve looked at (including this one: http://www.makesomething.ca/2008/10/01/making-a-terrarium/ ) a closed terrarium needs a layer of this to filter the water.

Now I have everything I need to get started, next to make a plan…


The bits and bobs I picked up on today’s walk.


Filter carbon from the pet shop, I hope this is the right stuff…
