Tropical Terrarium Care Guide

Tropical Terrarium Care Guide

A terrarium is a miniature garden in a sealed container. The plants and soil naturally release water vapour, which collects on the wall of the container. This water then trickles down the walls back into the soil. This magical process means terrariums are self-nourishing and require very little maintenance once they’re sealed. If you’re wondering whether this means that a terrarium recycles its own water, then you are absolutely correct! Yeah, it blows our minds too.



Terrariums love a well-lit area with indirect sunlight. Try to avoid direct sun, as the plants may burn.


If condensation has appeared on the glass and the plants are starting to wilt, your terrarium might be a little thirsty! It won’t need watering often, but this is usually a sign.


Our good looking terrarium is super low-maintenance. However, if you see any weeds, mould, or unhealthy looking plants, we recommend our aquarium scissors to help keep your creation fresh. Sometimes the glass might appear constantly wet from too much condensation. If this happens, take off the lid to air the terrarium for a couple of hours.
