Here is my first terrarium! I had so much fun with this, even though it took me a couple of tries. The second picture is a topside view. I used 3 types of ferns (maidenhair, heart leaf, and something that looks like a fluffy ruffle), and golden creeper moss. I’ll share what I learned through reading online and talking with the nursery staff, for those who are thinking of making one:
1. The layering materials: pebbles (for drainage), activated charcoal (to prevent bad smells and mold), soil, then plants. The nursery staff also recommended using a piece of typar cloth between the charcoal and soil to keep them from mixing.
2. Water the plants before planting in the soil.
3. If there’s too much condensation, open the lid for 4-6 hours to dry it out.
4. But if you can’t see any moisture, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
5. If there’s a little bit of condensation along the soil line, leave it alone. This is what you want.
6. Since a closed terrarium makes its own atmosphere, you never have to open it if the moisture level is right, which is #dwarfferns #ferns #houseplants #closedterrarium #terrariumferns #terrariums #terrariumlife #selligenellakrausianaaurea #goldencreepermoss #maidenhairfern #indoorplants #terrariumlover #miniecosystem #terrariumlove #terrariumdesign #heartleaffern #terrariumplants #terrarium
