How to care for terrariums

by Loan Pham on September 03, 2020

Terrariums are miniature indoor gardens arranged in a glass fish bowl. We select the best and most appropriate plants for the environment and line the bowl with lush green moss. Terrariums can last up to 5 years with a small amount of TLC.


Position the terrarium in a bright filtered sunlight position. The best direct sunlight is morning sunlight for about 30 minutes. This will help encourage photosynthesis and avoid the harsh strong afternoon heat which can dry out the soil and stress / wilt the plants. 

Terrariums do not need too much water. With an easy visual check of the bottom of the glass bowl, you can determine if watering is required.The water level at the bottom of the glass bowl needs to only just cover the small pebbles. Maintaining the water at this level will allow enough moisture in the soil for the plant roots to draw up should they require it..

Once a week or so, a light spray of water mist over the terrarium will help keep the top soil and moss looking fresh and hydrated.
