Terrariums are a great way to bring fresh green in your home without a lot of effort. With just some basic supplies, you can build these all-inclusive habitats that allow plants to thrive. Although terrariums are easy to craft, getting all of the supplies together can be troublesome; if you’re just planning on one terrarium, you’ll likely have materials left over. That’s where terrarium kits come in handy. They have everything you need in one convenient package.

Do-it-yourself terrarium kits come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and plant types. With this much selection, you can certainly find a set that will suit your desired style. For instance, some come with succulents and cacti, for a desert aesthetic. Other kits feature air plants and pebbles or sand which look beautiful when hung in your home. Don't worry about how to assemble these sets. The instructions will demystify the whole process.

In addition to what's inside the terrarium, you'll also want to keep in mind what kind of container you want. Open containers, for instance, give you the opportunity to look inside and even adjust if necessary. Whereas a closed container keep the plants sealed away, retaining moisture for plants like live moss. With so many popular choices, it can be difficult to find the kit that's right for you.

Fortunately, we've made the process easier by selecting some of the best kits. Each one will certainly serve as inspiration to start working on a project. And soon you'll be on your way to making your own terrarium that you can proudly display in your office or home.
