How to make an indoor garden in a terrarium

Terrarium as an Indoor Garden

If you want to look your plants in the inside, there is a solution. And you do not have the time or a green thumb to take care of them. A terrarium is a solution for plant habitat. You can choose a jar or container as a terrarium. Close the lid and create your own ecosystem for your plant to plant. Stay relax and just enjoy watching them.

The options for terrarium containers are limited by your own imagination only. Conventionally a smaller aquarium is used with a lid but a glass jar or other container will work very well as well. Plastic will also work, just make sure it is a transparent plastic or you will not be able to admire your work once it is completed. Whatever size or material you choose for your terrarium, the most important factor is that it does not leak. You need water and moisture to stay in for it to function and you do not want a mess inside your house.

Plants which you can plant

The plants you choose should thrive in similar conditions and grow well in a humid environment. Popular plants to put in a terrarium are carnivores (Venus Fly Trap, sundew, or plant pitch) or rainforest plants (chamaedorea palms, small ferns or fittonia).

Terrariums are indoor garden with low maintenance. This requires indirect sunlight (not too bright) and no water is needed after the initial water is added. The heat inside the terrarium evaporates the water and then condenses on the lid falling down to the plants. This process will continue to keep your plants alive. If there is too much water present, you may need to ventilate the terrarium (with a vented lid or open the top a small amount) just be sure to keep an eye on the level of soil moisture (not too humid or dry).
