Terrarium Care: 5 Simple Steps to Caring for Your Terrarium

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced gardener, these five simple steps will ensure your terrarium can thrive.

1. Misting with Water

Start with weekly maintenance, then less frequently as your terrarium is established. Sealed terrariums have their own microclimate and require less water. Use sprayers or small watering cans for misting.

2. Temperature and Humidity Regulation

Terrarium plants like warm, humid conditions (on the inside). Keep it sealed and temperature moderate. For best results, monitor temperature and humidity levels regularly with a thermometer / hygrometer combination device.

3. Placement in Bright Indirect Light

Provide plenty of light but avoid direct sun – window sills and areas where the sun hits directly will make it too hot. For best results, search out bright indirect light such as near a north-facing window if possible.

4. Pruning Plants If Necessary

If you give them the right conditions, your plants will undoubtedly grow! To keep them contained, trim stems lightly whenever needed with tiny scissors or tweezers for precision pruning jobs.

5. Wiping Down The Glass Occasionally

The walls of your terrarium will get dirty from time to time – wipe down the glass with a lint free cloth to keep it looking pristine while maintaining an unhindered view of your miniature ecosystem!

With these helpful tips in mind, caring for terrariums isn’t difficult at all! For more tips and info on terrariums, visit our home page or check out some of the links below:
