Teapot Terrarium This incredibly simple design uses a glass teapot and a teabag (yes, I said teabag) of spaghnum moss and succulent cuttings. To provide a little drainage, I've added a single layer of silver glass beads. To water, I fill it up to just above the layer of glass beads to let the moss soak it all up. That's it! Like I said, it's pretty darned simple.
