Do not overwater, when in doubt less is best.
Only mist with a spray bottle filled with distilled water.
Deionized water and reverse osmosis water are also best options
but filtered water from a Brita or bottled water will be adequate.
Avoid using fresh tap water for houseplants, let it sit out overnight uncovered.
Water only enough to keep the soil slightly moist but never
Condensation when the terrarium is getting light is ideal.
While overwatering is the primary reason for terrarium/houseplant death, not enough light is the second.
Closed Terrariums require low indirect light.
Open Terrariums with succulents/dry climate plants require more
sunlight and like morning sun.
Avoid leaving a terrarium in full sun outside.
Living vases containing Pothos prefer dappled sunlight outside. Pothos’ leaves will burn in direct sun.
Bonsai Bottles uses Springtails, Collembolans as a preventative measure in our products against mold and undesirable bacteria.
The microclimate inside a terrarium mimics a tropical environment with temperate mosses, mold and unwanted bacteria also thrive in these conditions
Springtails (Collembolans) are omnivorous, free-living organisms that prefer moist conditions. They munch on mold and fungi, and help to aerate the soil.
