Your terrarium is a unique self-contained ecosystem filled with living plants. It will continue to grow indefinitely with little care and maintenance. Because they’re created by hand using found objects or antique glass, each terrarium is a one-of-a-kind objet d’art.
About your terrarium:
Your terrarium has been created using professionally accepted planting methods and treated for pests and mold. All living organisms are slow-growing, bonsaied or dwarf perrenials and, with proper care, will not outgrow their environs. Plant types include succulents, ivies, mosses, orchids, bromeliads, groundcovers, epiphytes and California-native grasses.
Care and maintenance:
Caring for your terrarium is simpler than a houseplant: Place it in a sunny spot and mist it with water occasionally. WATERING For open-top terrariums, water every two weeks. For closed or air-sealed terrariums, water every three months. If the soils or plants appear dry, increase the humidity level by misting the plants and then closing the lid. Trimming and pruning is encouraged and may be required, depending on the species present in your terrarium. For succulents, use less water and select a bright, sunny window. FEEDING An equal fertilizer should be administer quarterly; fertilizing too often could excellerate the growth of some plants. LONG-TERM CARE Trimming dead back dead leaves will improve the aesthetics of your terrarium but it’s not required. If a plant outgrows its space, it can be removed or pruned. Pests like insects, fungi and mold should be removed immediately; beneficials nematodes can be added temporarily and then released to control harmful insects. If mushrooms or mold appear, decrease watering amounts and lightly mist the terrarium with a diluted fungicide.
Living with your terrarium:
Your terrarium will require very little maintenance and should thrive for years to come. Place it in a visible, bright location where you will be able to observe its health on a regular basis. Avoid moving the terrarium too often, as this may shock certain plant species. If you notice unusually slow growth or unhealthy-looking plants, place the terrarium in a brighter location like a south-facing window, greenhouse or a brightly lit office. If the plants appear to wilt or dry out, increase its watering schedule and nutrient feedings. Fill in bare or dead spots with new slow-growing plants.
