Recently, on the Internet, you can see more and more beautiful photographs of terrariums with plants. Many of them are almost works of art - with a plot, figures of characters and tiny copies of objects. Such a thing may seem very difficult to perform and whimsical to care for, but it is not, if you follow a few tips.
In general, a glass container in which plants suitable for such conditions grow can become something like an independent ecosystem. Of course, it is not airtight, it is necessary to water the miniature garden from time to time, but the water evaporates much more slowly, and moisture-loving plants feel great in such a microclimate.
But before starting work, do not forget to wear gloves and safety glasses, because small glasses that can fly apart when preparing the light bulb can be very dangerous.
We take sharp pliers and remove the metal contact from the base of the light bulb. To do this, split the black insulation and remove the glass content outside. Now we need to find a screwdriver and punch through everything that is unnecessary inside the light bulb, since we need a clean workpiece. Be careful with shards of glass, make sure that the shards do not fall on you and on the floor.
We got an empty container in which we can now lay all the plants and soil. On the street we find a beautiful stone, on which we make several points with hot melt glue. They will play the role of soft legs for the stability of the structure and the furniture will be protected from scratches. Spread hot glue on one side and fix the light bulb at an angle. Here is a place for your imagination, you can give our eternal terrarium any position.
Now you need to go to the forest to find ingredients for the terrarium. We need forest soil, moss, which is very well suited for our purpose, as it is very hardy, looks beautiful and unpretentious. For beauty, you will also need a tree bark, pieces of dry branches and an acorn, which will be a cork for a light bulb.
We will fill in some small stones at the bottom, they will play the role of drainage. Pour sand on top of the pebbles, and then add forest soil. For convenience, you can use tweezers or wooden sticks, which are abundant in almost all homes.
Now, with the same tools, we beautifully lay objects of fauna and others that you like on the bottom of the light bulb. We have almost reached the finish line. There are just a few finishing touches left.
Pour in a few drops of water. If you managed to capture several acorns in the forest, they can also be used to decorate the eternal terrarium. If you don't find acorns, use a piece of twig that can be used to make a small cork. Instead of a stone, copper wire can be used for delivery. As a result, we have a beautiful mini terrarium made from an ordinary burnt out light bulb. Its eternal properties are that it is tightly closed, but this not only does not become detrimental to plants, moreover, it creates a closed ecosystem in which the life of plants will not stop. Microflora is formed inside, the use of carbon dioxide is the production of oxygen and the water cycle. It's like a small planet with its own conditions in which some species can die, while others thrive for decades.
