Derived from the Latin words terra, meaning earth, and arium, meaning place or receptacle, terrariums are miniature, self-sustaining ecosystems enclosed within glass jars. Gaining popularity during the Victorian Era, these 19th Century inspirations offer an alternative method of growing tropical plants within our homes.

The separating hemispheres of the sphere terrarium allow you to easily open your terrarium to more closely observe and care for the plants within.

Enclosed within is the Fittonia Albivenis - Nerve Plant. Each leaf is decorated with white veins creating a vibrant and intricate mosaic patter. In their native South America, Fittonia Albivenis, sprawl along the floor spreading as much as 50cm.

Terrarium Care

Light

Place your terrarium in a bright space that receives indirect sunlight. Avoid intense, directly sunlight as this can cause temperatures within your terrarium to increase significantly.

Water

Being a miniature ecosystem, terrariums require minimal watering. The soil within should be moist at all times but not soggy. If the soil appears to be dry add a small amount of water using a spray bottle. 

Tips

When your terrarium has reached a healthy balance within your home condensation should regularly form towards the top of the glass jar in the morning and afternoon and condense at night, returning to the soil below.  If, however, condensation is forming across the entirety of the inside of the glass jar, or there appears to be mold forming, there may be too much water present. To help correct this, remove the top of your terrarium for ~5 hours once per week until condensation only forms towards the top. 

Size

At its widest point your terrarium is 17cm in width and is 17cm tall.
