Let’s Talk Terrariums

Big, small and usually indoors the modern way of growing gardens is in a terrarium under glass.  In this post, I share some creative ideas and tips on how to grow a Terrarium.

Let’s Talk Terrariums

While I was at the store I can’t help but strolling through the houseplants and gawk over the new seeds.  I came across terrarium dishes that happen to be marked down. I couldn’t help but wonder about the process of putting one of these little plant conservatories together. Would the plants actually grow in a contained environment similar to my Geodesic Bio Dome?

  1. I’ve created quite a few terrariums. I have much better luck without a lid. Keep moist, not wet. Mine tend to develop mold when lidded. Some aquarium carbon sprinkled between the stones and the soil also helps to keep them healthy. I especially love the look of moss in them.
    I had a great surprise when a 1″ tip of azalea branch that I had placed in a tiny terrarium to give the appearance of a tree bloomed after a couple of months.

  2. I’ve had a terrarium or two over the years. It’s a fun little project. I think I’ve had them open and closed. It depends on the plants. It will be more humid in the closed one.

  3. To be truly called a terrarium, they need to be a closed container. If not closed, they are a “planted bowl,” “glass container,” “bowl garden,” or whatever you want to call it. Terrariums are a fun project, because they need to be balanced so that they have just the right combination or plants, soil, water, light, and space to allow the plants to create their own little ecosystem. At times, there will be condensation on the inside – the terrarium environment’s version of rain. If it doesn’t clear up in a few hours, and remain clear for a time, the lid needs to be opened for a bit – preferably on a day when humidity is low. Or if the plants start to wilt, you need to open it and add water. You have to play around with them for awhile, but when everything is functioning, they can exist for year without every being opened. That’s what makes them alot of fun.
