Terrariums are a big part of Terra garden’s origin story, and one of our favorite things to create. We are constantly stocking glass of all shapes and sizes, terrarium-friendly plant varieties, and all of the structural and decorative supplies necessary to have us build one for you, or to build one on your own. We also have a wide variety of pre-made terrariums on hand for different light conditions and care needs.
A terrarium is a collection of small plants growing in a transparent, sealed container. A terrarium is a closed environment, and can actually be used to illustrate how an ecosystem works. Inside a terrarium’s walls, many different natural processes may be observed: photosynthesis, respiration, and the water cycle. The water in the terrarium is constantly recycled, passing from liquid form to gas and back again. As the moisture in the air condenses on the glass walls, it returns to the soil and is absorbed by the plants’ roots.
