Care Guide

Placement: Place in a spot with bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can cause excessive heat, leading to plant stress or scorching. A well-lit room or an area with filtered light is ideal for maintaining a healthy terrarium.

Watering: Because our sealed terrariums create a self-sustaining water cycle, you should only water if the soil, moss or plants look brown or dry. Overwatering can lead to root rot and other issues. If you have an open or semi-sealed terrarium, a light misting every few days should suffice. Monitor the moisture level regularly to strike the right balance. You should aim to keep the soil consistently moist but not soaking wet. 

Ventilation: Although sealed, your terrarium might require some fresh air circulation to prevent excessive humidity. Moderate condensation on the glass in the evening or morning is part of the water cycle and not a cause for concern. However, excessive moisture might occur. Opening the lid for a day should clear it up.  This simple step helps maintain a healthy balance within the enclosed environment.

Mold: In some cases, a new terrarium may have some mold growth. This is normal and part of it settling in. If it becomes extreme or you dont like the way it looks you can mist it with diluted Hydrogen Peroxide to kill some of the mold. This won't harm the plants. 

Temperature: Terrariums thrive in moderate temperatures, generally ranging from 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Avoid placing your terrarium near drafty windows, air conditioners, or heating vents, as extreme temperature fluctuations can stress the plants.
