The Terrarium Guide Choosing Your Container

Choosing Your Container

via Desima

Here’s a very handy Infographic from Desima that shows you how to choose the right container for your Terrarium. A closed container will require less maintenance.

If you select an open container, it will require regular misting. There is a list of suggested plants for you to consider including Maidenhair Ferns and Baby’s Tears.

It’s also very important to ensure that you don’t place your Terrarium in direct sunlight. The last thing you want to do is cook your plants.

Picking The Right Plants For Terrariums

This Infographic from  Custom Made shows you the preferred plant choices for your Terrarium. We were surprised to see that Cacti is not ideal as over time the moist conditions can lead to rot. A more suitable alternative is Air Plants.

They require a 20 to 30 minute soak 1-3 times a week. Rooted Plants are also a great choice as they enjoy humid conditions and require very little water. Succulents are a great fit also.
