Decorative beauty of terrariums

Floral and plant displays have come a long way over the years and we have becoming increasingly creative with our designs. Terrariums are the latest craze and they are fantastic for adding colour and style to any room in your home or even your office!

Terrariums are glass containers used for growing decorative and ornamental plants. Inside the glass containers, you will be able to enjoy the sight of a living and breathin world. It’s like bringing the outdoors inside! So, even if you live in an apartment or you are stuck in a stuffy office for several hours, you will still be able to enjoy the beauty of nature.

These terrariums are compact and they don’t require too much space. That said, it’s important to remember that you need the right kinds of plants for such a display. For example, you cannot use large plants or plants that grow particularly quickly. If you do, they will not look good for long. Think of your terrarium as a kind of miniature garden – only small plants will do.

It’s also good to choose plants that enjoy high humidity. The glass will increase the humidity and, since the water will not drain out the bottom as it does for regular potted plants, you can be sure that the immediate environment surrounding your plants will become quite humid indeed.

These glass containers can be suspended or displayed using various kinds of stands. They are incredibly versatile and they won’t take up much space at all. Avoid direct sunlight, sudden temperature changes and temperature extremes. Remove any dead plant mateial as soon as you notice it and keep the glass clean.
