Traversing the world of plants with your beloved

I've been taking an intermittent hiatus from my blog— the initial reason was drowning in my final-year project... but after stepping back, I realised that there were so many things I want to do and have unfortunately been procrastinating. Building a terrarium was one of the items in my bucket list BECAUSE it amazes me how life can sustain itself without little care. Le BF did not think that way so I dragged him to build a terrarium from scratch, with the help of YouTube videos and supplies from Masons Home Decor. Read on to find out how you can get a great Terrarium deal exclusive to @littletinysun readers :)

Overview of terrarium flatly
We got the A-Grade Terrarium Kit (worth $159.90). It may sound hefty at first but a premium terrarium workshop would have cost double the price in Singapore. It came with the following items:
  • Welcome Note
  • Step by Step Instructions
  • 1 Set of Shovels
  • 1 Spray Bottle
  • 1 Bag of Activated Charcoal
  • 3 Assorted Bags of Decorative Pebbles
  • 9 Assorted Succulents
  • 2 Big Glass Jars

Taadahh! Here's how it looks like (Source:

You can't imagine the joy I've had when a HUMONGOUS box arrived at my house. I was like, "Uhhh are you sure this is mine?" to the delivery guy. Well well well, it was one of the most memorable moments..... so I called the guy to come over to my house for some terrarium building and it is really a lot harder than I imagined.

We made a beautiful mess out of our creation!

I wanted to document the process of how to make a terrarium but it was really challenging. We had to playback multiple videos. The step-by-step instructions given by Mason Home Decor was pretty basic, so there were a lot of questions such as 'how much pebbles should I put' etc.

The soil does not separate itself from the plant
Apparently, each succulent has a name and they have different surviving capabilities. I know that because I left the succulents at a dark spot for several days and one started wilting.. I shifted that particular plant to the sun and oh gosh it REVIVED!

I'm not sure how long it took us - probably about 1-3 hours? We had a lot of fun trying to make the succulent stand on its own... I guess there's something magical about having the opportunity to work with your partner— to work as a team!

So I just saw that Masons Home Decor had a wide variety of DIY Terrariums as well.

I mean - you don't have to water these plants regularly and they stand strong on its own. These succulents really give me a lot of motivation .. they are like the 'never-say-die' kinda plant. My favourite is the Cividale. So cute, like green fat french fries!

So I asked le BF what he thought of the experience, and here's what he said:

"I initially didn't think that it'd be fun but seeing how we can work together was so much fun!"
