Geode Terrariums are the perfect way to showcase geodes, one of nature’s beautiful gems. Geodes are rocks that have a surprise inside. Geodes are created by volcanic activity; they look ordinary from the outside but have a little secret inside. When you cut open a geode, you can see that they have crystals inside. Geodes have become quite popular lately and incorporating them into a terrarium is a perfect idea. You can decorate your home with plant and prism terrariums, and you can also decorate the terrariums.
The best way to decorate the terrarium is to incorporate some geodes. Each geode is a unique creation from nature that will make your terrarium outstanding. You can find geodes that are big or small, and adding a geode to your terrarium will help make to make it special. The size of geode you use in your terrarium will depend on the size of your terrarium and your taste and the look you are going for. Another great idea is a small hanging terrarium, just plant your favorite plants, with succulents and cactus being good choices. Then add some small geodes into the terrarium, and you'll have a beautiful geode terrarium that will be the perfect decor for any home.
You can start to decorate your terrarium with some small stones or pebbles. This step helps to show the glass edges rather than the soil. Then to add plants you want to make a small indent into the middle of the terrarium’s stones and fill that with cactus soil. The cacti or the succulents can be planted into that, without making too big of a mess. A funnel helps to place more stones of different sizes as well as a finished layer of sand into the empty spots after you are done. Try some colored sand if you'd like, dried moss and faux moss balls, also help to soften the hard cacti edges. Then place the crystals or geodes into the terrarium to make the project complete. This is an easy DIY idea that won't take you a lot of time, and it's so easy to make you'll want to give them as gifts too. You can find the terrariums at a thrift shop or dollar store, in different sizes to suit your home. You can also add in some dried flowers or make a themed geode terrarium to give as a gift for both kids and adults a like, or make a couple to put in different areas of your home; the possibilities are endless.
A geode is a crystal with a hollow center. Crystals grow into the hollow part of the stone, which often results in beautiful structures. Some common crystal geodes include amethysts, calcite, quartz and citrine. Geodes can be used for protection for homes and are said to cleanse a room's energies. They are rounded, hollow voids found in rocks filled with crystals and other minerals. Geodes are typically formed when the air bubbles inside of volcanic rock form hollow cavities. Over time, as the mineral-rich water seeps into the rock, it begins to deposit tiny crystals onto the sides of the hollow cavity.
