Can't decide? We can help to find a plant for you.
A plant terrarium, also known as a bottle garden, is a closed environment. In the ecosystem, different organisms form a unity. The plants extract nutrients, such as moisture, from the existing environment. A closed terrarium is therefore independent!
Well, sometimes it's good to do some maintenance on your terrarium. Do you see that there is a lot of condensation on the glassware? Then allow the glass terrarium to air for 24 hours, so that the condensation reduces. If a terrarium has a lot of condensation, this is usually caused by too much light or a room that is too warm. Therefore, never position a plant terrarium at a location with a lot of direct sunlight. Indirect sunlight is the perfect location for a terrarium.

You don't need to take care of a closed plant terrarium on a daily basis. The reason for this is that opening a closed terrarium may disturb the situation in the terrarium. Because air suddenly enters the terrarium ecosystem, the humidity will be reduced.
