A forest in a jar can be the perfect way to make an eco-friendly and at the same time original decoration for your home. Check how to make it at home without spending a fortune on expensive accessories.
Making a forest in a jar itself is very simple. All you need is a few moments of free time to create your own little ecosystem.
To make a forest in a jar you need:
Remember to press the previous one with your fingers before you put the next layer. To make the jar look more interesting you can also place seashells, natural stones and twigs in it. It will surely look beautiful. It looks great on the windowsill or on the table as a Christmas decoration. You can make such a forest in a jar also with the help of children who love such creative games.
There are two ways to make a forest in a jar. Some people close the jar by watering the plants once before. This creates a closed loop in the jar – a mini ecosystem where the constant evaporation of water allows the plants to thrive and grow. The second way is to leave the jar open and water the plants once in a while. If you don’t quite know how to create the right ecosystem for the plants inside the jar, it’s better to leave it open. Otherwise you might inadvertently dry out the plants or over water them and they will start to rot.
There are also very interesting suggestions for arranging jars with a small ecosystem inside. Open glass balls with plants can be hung from the ceiling at different heights, which is an ideal way to decorate the living room or bedroom in an original way. Importantly, plants in jars do not need to be watered often, which is a huge plus, especially for people who do not have much time to take care of flowers, but love green additions to the house.
There are some plants that are perfect for making a forest in a jar with them.
These types of plants can be combined in one jar because they need similar watering. This way, none of the flowers will suffer if they are watered more or less. You can also ask for help from a salesperson in a garden store, who will certainly advise you on what flowers will be suitable
