A guide to successful terrarium care
A terrarium is an enclosed glass or plastic container. Terrariums can be used as decoration for your home, school, office, dormitory, etc. They are also used to grow plants indoors during cold seasons or to contain plants that need higher humidity levels because their leaves are sensitive to dehydration. The basic idea behind the terrarium workshops in Singapore is to create an ecosystem with soil and objects to make it look like a miniature garden. Below are some tips on how you can care for your terrarium workshop in Singapore.
- To make sure that there’s enough air circulation in your terrarium, open the lid every few days (2-3 times per week). You don’t want mold building up by wetting the inside of the glass surface too often.
- Water your plants once every 2 weeks. Only water the soil, not the leaves (the delicate green parts). Put a few drops of water at a time on the terrarium’s soil and let it absorb for 10 minutes before putting in more water. Never pour cold or hot water on your plants; room temperature is best! If you use bottled water, let it come to room temperature before pouring.
- Remove the plants from it if there is condensation building up or spilling out of the container. This means that you’re overwatering them and they need a little break from being in a closed environment.
- For live plants, never use pesticides on them! Pesticides will kill the plants and you’ll be unhappy.
- If the roots of your plant are visible, gently pull them to see if they’re growing. If so, give it some more space in your terrarium by moving soil around for new growth. If your plant’s leaves wilt, put some water on them and move the container into a spot that gets more sunlight.
- If you want more specific instructions on how to take care of your terrarium, it is wise to attend a workshop that will teach you the basics and the proper way to take care of plants with soil. A fundamental part of having a quality growing environment begins with using sterile potting soil made especially for plants that will grow in a closed environment.
- 7. It is not an exact science and therefore there are no concrete rules of how you can make one, but some factors to keep in mind when building a terrarium include the amount of air circulation, the humidity level, and sunlight it gets. You may need to adjust these requirements depending
