The cooled sand is poured into the lamp — it'll be the soil. The natural soil can't be used for this purpose, as it grows musty.

Some dry floristic blend, which contains moss and reindeer moss, or Tillandsia seeds, is poured into the lamp.

Damp the air in the terrarium some times a week with a sprayer. The lamp terrarium should be placed farther from the straight sunlight but not in the darkness.
