    What plants are you planning on growing? I suppose if you really want to do this it's as easy as planting the plant in soil in the terrarium. If you want it to look like a forest floor, drop some common Utricularia and let it spread.

    Putting all those in the same terrarium as a "landscape" isn't necessarily a good idea, unless you are extremely careful in your soil placement and elevations - that being that the plants you mention all have different soil composition preferences and watering needs. Even then, it could be easier to put potted plants in a soil and cover the pots with moss or something, but you still have to worry about water levels.

    also the neps will grow out of it in only a few months.
