Preserving A Closed Terrarium
1. The plants in a closed terrarium require high light but no direct sunlight.
2. Check the terrarium frequently for the appearance of condensation on the glass. If large water drops appear on the glass, the container should be left open for a while, until excess moisture evaporates. In some cases, it may be necessary to keep the lid slightly open to allow fresh air circulation.
However, keep in mind that a balanced terrarium should have a certain amount of moisture on the glass.
3. A completely enclosed terrarium requires little or no watering but when in doubt, always water less. If you can see water within the pebbles at the bottom, there is way too much water.
Be careful that the plants do not become too dry because they will wilt.
4. When you do add water, do so in small amounts at a time, since there is no place for the surplus water to run off. It’s best to water with a syringe, small dropper or misting spray bottle. If you do mist, then leave the container open until the leaves have dried.
5. If the leaves show signs of rotting, leave the container open.
6. Only water with bottled or distilled water, or tap water that has been left out for 24 hours to allow the chlorine to evaporate.
7. Generally, terrariums should not need fertilising but if the plants start to appear malnourished, you may feed them using a weak mixture (1/4 strength) of an all purpose house plant food.
8. Occasionally it may become necessary to prune or to replace a dead plant.
