How to make a Terrarium in 4 steps …
The size of your container will affect the amount of materials you will need and use:
1. The first layer is rocks, which you can purchase at pet, garden or craft stores. Add enough to the bottom for adequate drainage.
2. The next layer is activated charcoal, which you can get at pet or garden stores (it is used in fish tanks). Add a thin layer over the rocks.
3. Depending on the depth of your container, you will next add soil. Leave enough room for your plant’s roots.
4. Next is your plant(s). Make sure they are not touching the glass as it will make them brown. One of the trickiest things is finding the right sized and shaped plants. If it won’t hurt the plant, you can divide it and use only a section because it needs room to grow.
5. If your container is going to be closed, you can add moss around the sides of the plant. Open containers with succulents or cacti should be carefully filled in with pebbles on top.

god i love gus fring so much man. young queer gus fring whose villain origin story starts with watching his boyfriend (the only person we’ve ever known for sure he Loved and Cared about) be murdered right before his eyes. gus fring the amazing business man the genius who is detached and calculated and doesn’t really care about anyone anymore and is as Villain as it gets and does Horrible things but never hurts the people i care about and just throws himself into this business bc that’s what he’s good at what he’s brilliant at but there is still so much anger underneath as much as he wishes there wasn’t. gus fring who needed revenge who murdered the people who killed his boyfriend and probably told himself it was at least partly about business even though he must know it was all for max. gus fring who values logic and organization but mostly loyalty and hates walter white bc he can’t stay on path and he can’t stay loyal and is a little fond of jesse pinkman bc he is as loyal as they come (but also frustrated by him bc he can’t get him to be loyal to him). gus fring who doesn’t value loyalty from a relationship standpoint (though maybe he did, once, when he cared enough to) but strictly from a business perspective. who cares about everything strictly from a business perspective. gus fring, who is as villain as they get, but whose story- though it parallels walt’s in some ways- is also the opposite in a lot of ways. walt turned into a villain and destroyed everyone he loved in the process. gus fring became a villain because what he loved most was destroyed.

"It produces beautiful colours - deep blues, indigos, oranges and blood reds," says London-based textile designer Natsai Chieza (pictured). "I want to use them as a sustainable factory to make fabric dyes."
Chieza discovered colour-creating bacteria, such as Streptomyces, by taking soil samples from the roots of herbs such as tarragon, oregano and sage, and culturing them in a plate. “Sometimes the microbe has its own cellular colour and it seeps pigment of different colours, so you end up with a whole palette,” says Chieza. She found that these colours could stain silk fabrics like organza, satin and pongee. “We take the fabric and put it in with the growing microbes; they soak up the material and produce unique patterning.” (via This artist paints with soil bacteria (Wired UK))
