These two little ecosystems are thriving with very little care. If you want to make your own this ecosystem, you can do it step by step :
1. Target sells the glass cookie jars for $10-20. Using cookie jars because they have the glass tops and a rubber seal.

2. Go to the park and look for moss covered rocks on walking trails. The moss will peal right off. Put in a large zip-lock bag. Try to get at least 4 different varieties to mix in the jars.

3. Add rocks to the bottom of the jars to allow for drainage. Fill a few inches with dirt (any dirt will do). Make the dirt uneven, little dips and valleys make for a better terrarium.

4. Place the moss in the jars. You don’t have to “plant” the moss, simply laying it on top of the dirt will do.

In the large terrarium you can added a branch, a rock, and a LEGO horse, however once the moss starts growing, it will cover up objects you may have placed in the jar. You can also added rubber bumpers on the bottom of the jars so they don’t slide around.

So there you have it, for under $20 you can have a cool Ecosystem moss terrarium.
