Tropical Terrarium Care
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.
THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR
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.
NEED A HAND?
Our Big Papa has quite a thin neck, so if you’re struggling to get the materials inside the glass… fear not! We recommend creating a DIY funnel with some spare cardboard to streamline the process!
