Why Use Glass Terrariums?
Did you know the popularity of glass terrariums began in the 1800s? It hasn’t wavered since, either, providing gardeners of all experience levels with an opportunity to create beautiful arrangements in small or large terrariums using plants that would otherwise not thrive in their climate zone. What our nursery experts love about terrariums is that they’re a natural décor item that adds character to your home.
From a strictly gardening standpoint, glass terrariums are the preferred choice, as well. They allow the proper light and light intensity in and also hold moisture. In comparison, tinted glass terrariums block some light spectrums, which affect the growth of your plants. A red-tinted glass terrarium, for instance, would cause your plants to become leggy. Our nursery experts also recommend avoiding most plastic terrariums as they can become scratched.
Tips for Choosing the Right Type of Glass Terrarium
If you’re excited to add terrariums to your home, patio or sunroom, ask yourself the following questions before you buy your glass terrarium and supplies:
- What size terrarium do you want to have in your home or patio?
- Where do you plan to place your terrarium?
- What plants or arrangements do you want in your terrarium?
- How much sunlight does your display area offer?
- What kind of terrarium shape or design do you want?
With your answers, you’ll discover that finding the best type of glass terrarium for your home is not only simple but also enjoyable.
How to Use Glass Terrariums
Your first set of glass terrariums may require a bit of preparation, but it’s immensely rewarding to watch your terrarium come to life.
When you purchase your glass terrarium, you’ll also want to buy the following glass terrarium supplies:
- Terrarium plants
- Horticultural charcoal
- Soil separator
- Sphagnum moss
- Moss, orchid bark or pebbles
- Distilled water
If you’ve decided on your terrarium type — bog, desert or tropical — you’ll also want to purchase the appropriate supplies for creating your soil mixture. For example, if you’re making a tropical terrarium, you’ll need sandy potting soil, peat moss and perlite or soilless potting mix, sand and standard potting soil. In comparison, a bog would rely on a soil mix of charcoal, sand, standard potting soil and peat moss.
After all your supplies are at your home, follow these steps:
- Wash your terrarium with soap and water, allowing it to dry
- Insert some sphagnum moss to conceal your growing medium
- Add your drainage material of gravel and charcoal
- Place a soil separator, such as nylon netting, over your drainage material
- Moisten your soil mix and add over your soil separator
- Arrange your plants from largest to smallest in your terrarium
And voila! You have a beautiful terrarium.
For everyday care, provide your plants with room-temperature distilled water to cover the surface of your soil. If you overfill, drain with a baster.
