For the love of Terrariums
We are hosting a terrarium workshop at the Eco-Urban Garden on April 15th, so a post about terrariums is a nice introduction for those who don't know what terrariums are.
If you’re looking for a beautiful and low maintenance way to plantify your home, a terrarium might be perfect for you!
Terrariums come in a variety of different sizes and shapes and there are many different plants options that thrive in these glass homes.
Open terrariums are best for dry and arid plants like succulents and cacti. Succulents and cacti do not need to be watered as frequently because they store water in their leaves. Depending on the size of the terrarium and plants, you can water once every couple of weeks.
Closed terrariums are best for plants that like a lot of humidity like tropical plants. Once in a while you can let it air out if it starts to fog up but since its a closed system, it has its own biosphere and thus the plants can take care of themselves. Water once every 2-3 weeks depending on the plants. Mist in between waterings.
A few other terrariums we love...
Another thing I love about terrariums is that your pets can't dig around in the soil and you wont have to worry about them eating plants that could be harmful or toxic to them. Its a win, win! But because it is glass, you might want to keep it away from them anyway in case they get curious and knock it over.
