Glass terrarim plants - build your own miniature garden at home

A terrarium is usually a glass container containing soils and plants, that comes with a cut-out opening which is big enough for you to access to the plants inside for maintenance.

Terrariums are often kept as decorative and ornamental items. 

People are living in smaller homes now and they want something that fits on the small spaces.

A miniature glass garden offers a bit of nature to a home or office where we can view our miniature green world every day of our lives.

Not just for the tabletop, hanging terrariums can be suspended from the ceiling at different height levels to add dimension to a room.

Moss, ferns and succulents are often chosen as terrarium plants. These hearty plants easily adapt to live in the environment like an enclosed container that offers little light and watering.

Build your own garden in a fishbowl vessel!

Ferns are hard to kill.

What you need to keep in mind is to avoid overwatering or pouring water directly on terrarium plants.

Check the moisture level of the soil by sticking your finger in the sand.

You’ll only need to water them once a week or so, and they only need a sprinkle or two of water.

Unlike ferns and succulents, air plants don’t need soil to grow.

Closed terrariums create a unique environment for plant growth, as the transparent walls allow for both heat and light to enter the terrarium.

Most terrariums are filled with a bottom layer of sand and charcoal to help absorb excess water.

For succulents in a glass terrarium, you can wait a month between waterings.
