What is a terrarium
Terrariums are a popular way to showcase plants in tiny spaces, and they’re easy to care for. Terrariums can be made with open or closed containers; both types require proper drainage, but the type of plants you choose will affect how much sunlight you should provide them. Here’s what you need to know about building your own terrarium!

Terrariums are containers that hold soil and plants, and can be opened for maintenance or kept closed.
Terrariums can be open or closed. Open terrariums are usually planted with succulents, air plants, cacti or small houseplants that require very little water. Closed terrariums should be planted with tropical plants such as ferns and epiphytes (air-suspended plants). Drainage is an important factor in a terrarium’s survival because if it gets too wet the plant may not survive.

The container should be made out of glass or other material that allows light to pass through it while being able to retain moisture. Make sure that the opening is large enough so you can reach your hand inside without disturbing the soil too much when you need to water the plant inside or clean it out from time to time. You might want a few different sized containers so you can make multiple sizes of terrariums depending on how big your collection is getting!

Terrariums are usually created in a glass container.
Terrariums are usually created in a glass container. Glass is a good choice because it is durable and easy to clean, but you can also use plastic containers. However, plastic terrariums are not as durable as their glass counterparts, so if you want to keep your terrarium for years to come, consider investing in a quality glass one (available at many garden centers).

Terrarium care depends on whether your terrarium is open or closed.
The first thing to consider is whether your terrarium is open or closed. Open terrariums are easier to maintain, as they don’t require the same amount of sunlight or water as their closed counterparts. However, if you have an open terrarium and live in a cold climate, it will need more heat during the winter months to prevent frost damage.

Closed terrariums don’t allow in much light at all and hence require artificial lighting if you want them to grow successfully. They also need more water than an open terrarium (about once per week) because they don’t have access to rainwater like their open counterparts do.

Open terrariums can be planted with succulents, air plants, cacti or small houseplants.

Succulents and cacti are best suited to an open terrarium as they require less light than other plants.

Air plants are also a good choice for an open terrarium as they don’t need soil to grow—they absorb moisture and nutrients through their leaves.

Houseplants can be planted in an open terrarium but they need more sunlight than air plants or succulents do.

Closed terrariums should be planted with tropical plants.
A closed terrarium is usually more expensive than an open one, but it’s also a better choice for plants that need more moisture. Closed terrariums are designed to promote humidity and eliminate excess water from the soil, which makes them ideal for ferns and mosses.

Open terrariums are great for succulents and cacti because they have very different needs compared to tropical plants. If you want your plant to thrive in an open or closed terrarium, make sure it has been grown accordingly. As a general rule of thumb: if you’re going with a closed container, choose tropical plants; if you’re going with an open container, go with succulents!

There must be drainage for a terrarium to survive.
Your terrarium should have drainage holes in the bottom of the container. The soil will need to be kept moist, but not too wet. Over-wet soil can lead to root rot and fungi growths, which are dangerous for your plants. Draining water will also prevent salt build-up in the soil, since salts can prevent plants from being able to take up nutrients they need from their roots.

You can choose between open and closed containers depending on the needs of the plants you choose to grow in them.
There are two main types of terrariums: open and closed. Closed terrariums, which have a lid, are best suited for low-light plants that prefer to grow in moist soil and get less sunlight. Open terrariums allow light to reach the soil more easily and can be used with a variety of plants from different climates. The type of container you choose also affects how frequently you’ll need to water your plant—open containers dry out more quickly than closed ones and therefore require more frequent watering.

However, if you plan on using an open container for your terrarium, make sure that the plants inside are able to tolerate higher levels of humidity because they will not be able to breathe as well in low-humidity environments. On the other hand, if you want a closed terrarium (which is better for high-light plants), then it’s important not only that there’s enough light coming through but also enough airflow within the enclosure so that carbon dioxide can escape through ventilation holes while oxygen gets inside through those same holes (or via circulation fans).

Plants will not live long without sunlight.
Plants need light to grow and to thrive, but it’s a myth that they can photosynthesize in the dark. Plants don’t have eyes, so they can’t “see” the light you’re shining at them—but they do have tiny photoreceptors called phytochromes that detect blue and red wavelengths of light. When these wavelengths hit leaves, they trigger chemical processes in photosynthesis (the process by which plants turn sunlight into energy). Without these chemicals, there’s no food production for your plant!

So if you’ve got a terrarium with no windows or artificial lights, chances are your plants won’t live long without some kind of lighting source for their enclosure—and even then it’ll be difficult for them to grow properly.

Different types of plants need different levels of care and sunlight, so it’s important to understand plant needs with regard to building a successful terrarium.
A terrarium is a type of container garden that contains living plants in a closed system. The plant life used in a terrarium can be very different depending on the type of environment you want to create. In order to build the right terrarium for your own needs, it’s important to understand the different types of plants and how they’ll affect your design.

Open terrariums work best with succulents, air plants and cacti because they thrive in dry environments without much sunlight (just a few hours per day). These aren’t necessarily low-maintenance plants—you should mist them every few days with water from your faucet or even add some soil moisture—but they don’t need frequent watering like other tropical varieties do.
Closed terrariums are better suited for tropical species that require more moisture and humidity. Closed systems can also trap heat within them (remember: hot air rises), so you’ll have less trouble keeping these warm during cold months when temperatures drop outside!
Terrariums can be a fun project to make and they’re a great way to bring the outdoors into your home. If you’re looking for something easy and inexpensive, try building one with succulents or air plants. If you have some extra time on your hands or want something more challenging, consider planting tropical plants in an enclosed terrarium container instead!
