Producer Terrariums E-Learning
The virtual training of the terrarium maker has been created for the complete acquaintance of people with the terrarium. A terrarium is a transparent enclosed container (glass or plastic) in which a special set of compatible micro-plants can be grown. The terrarium is actually something like a greenhouse but on a miniature scale. We have two types of terrariums: closed and open. Closed terrariums have lids, but open terrariums have no lids.
Which plants are more suitable for a terrarium?
In general, deciduous plants and those that grow slowly are more suitable for terrariums. For example, the following can be mentioned:
- Ferns: including squirrels, bird’s nests and buttons;
- Carnivorous plants: including Venus-eating plants, potted plants and plants of the species Druza or the same as the dew of the sun; Dwarf Palms
- Aerobic plants: such as Thailand;
- Succulents: including Cactus, Hawthorn, Achoria and Crassula;
- Pepromia or the same spoon;
Tips for taking care of a terrarium:
The first point is about the amount of hydration to the terrarium. Yes, terrariums need water, but not as much as houseplants. Terrariums usually use plants that are hardier and do not require much watering. As we have said, the greenhouse structure of terrariums restores the evaporated water to the soil and maintains the moisture necessary for plant growth.
Closed terrariums should be watered on average once a month. This, of course, depends on various factors, including the type of terrarium plant and its environmental conditions. Terrariums should still be watered every three to six weeks on average. But as soon as you check the soil moisture, you gradually realize that your terrarium needs water from time to time. Also, if you water too much, the roots of the plants you planted will start to rot and your terrarium will smell bad.
The second point is about light. Regarding light, you should know that terrariums need direct or indirect sunlight. Artificial light can also be used for the terrarium. If you use artificial light, fluorescent or incandescent bulbs are preferable to incandescent bulbs.
