The latest trend in the plant community is one of our favorites. It involves maintaining a little ecosystem in your home. You guessed it… terrariums! We’re pretty big fans of terrariums here at Soltech because they’re great gifts and you get to be super creative when building your own little plant family. If you’ve never had a terrarium, I would highly recommend one! We’re going to give you the scoop on all you need to know about this new fun trend. One of the best parts about terrariums is that they can be created with pretty much any little plant you like! Succulents, cacti, or tropical plants make great options. They’re typically in a glass orb, kind of like their own little self-contained universe. In fact, terrariums can last for years if properly cared for. With the right tips, these little landscapes with thrive under your care. First off, there are two types of terrariums. Open terrariums are the most common and our favorites because they’re the easiest to maintain. These can be in a glass orb or vessel with an opening that lets your plantscape breathe. Closed terrariums are tricky because the hole is not large enough to regularly care for your plants. Due to the fact that they are self-sustainable, closed terrariums require a lot of specific knowledge when setting up.
