Terrariums are very easy to care for and provide an almost foolproof way of nurturing and displaying plants in your home. Here are a few instructions for you on caring for your terrarium and making sure you get pleasure from it for a long time!
- They love indirect, bright light
- They should always have a reservoir of water in their pebble base – if not, you will need to top it up
- A slight haze of condensation is a good indication that they have plenty of water
- Healthy, growing plants may start overcrowding and might need the occasional trim to keep them in good shape
Suitable plants for a terrarium are those that are slow-growing, enjoy moist and humid conditions and grow in shady/low light conditions. Here’s a few examples:
- Ficus varieties
Have a go at growing your own and getting started with terrariums and you won’t look back!
