How to make a jungle in a bowl
What you’ll need
A clear glass or plastic container
Lay down some newspaper so that you don’t make a mess. Next, find a clear container – like a glass bowl, vase or jar (we’ve used a fish tank) – and place some pebbles at the bottom to create a drainage system for your jungle habitat.
Add a layer of potting soil on top of the pebbles – make it deep enough to cover the plants’ roots.
Now it’s time to add the plants! To create a jungle theme, we’ve used ferns, flowers and a Venus fly trap – but you can use any plants you like!
Make holes in the soil where you want the plants to go. When you remove the plants from their pots, gently get rid of the excess soil around the roots and place them in the holes. Press the soil down around them.
When all the plants are in, lightly water them. Now all you need to do is add your animals and use a few of the left-over pebbles for decoration. Then find a great place to display your brilliant indoor jungle. Roarrr-some!
Top tip: Remember to water your jungle whenever the soil gets dry!
