What is a Terrarium?
A closed terrarium is a sealable glass container containing soil and plants. Once the plants are sealed inside they photosynthesise creating heat & oxygen, which in turn creates condensation on the inside of the glass vessel. This is how the terrarium self waters! There is very little hands on care required making these fascinating self sufficient eco systems, very very popular! They are great too if you are looking for a pet friendly alternative to houseplants.
