A terrarium is a collection of small plants growing in a transparent, sealed container.
It is a closed environment in which succulents,small leafed foliages. are planted and displayed
near the window sill. The water in the terrarium is constantly recycled, passing from liquid form
to gas and back again. As the moisture in the air condenses on the glass walls, it returns to the soil and is absorbed by the plants’ roots.
A glass bottle or an old aquarium box could also be used .Plants like Euphorbia mili,or any cactus would do just to add some color, foliage with small leaf can also be planted like syngonium,pepperomia etc.Cocoa peat,Spagnum Moss,Broken terrakota pieces.and some fancy accessories are required for a basic terrarium
First fill the bottom with terrakota pieces and charcoal powder
JUST GO THROUGH THE TIPS BELOW FOR JUSTIFICATION
Few years ago when I created my first terrarium every morning I would go near it and water the plants thinking it would grow fast but in reality You should not water it till the plants become dry(If you water frequently all the roots would rot leaving plants dead) By mistake If you have watered excessively, walls of the bottle would be misty,In that case you can keep the lid of the bottle open for few hours and then close to retain the moisture.Rule of the thumb is to never water frequently. Just a few spoons once in two days will do.
You all would have read in School History about the Emperor GHAZNI MOHAMMAD invading the Kingdom umpteen times without success.I too am like Ghazni Ah!! but lastly he did succeed am I right? I too am hoping that atleast this time I would succeed .What say? Wish me good luck friends.
Enjoy the monsoon indoors with your terraium
