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.

Enclosed within is the Asparagus Setaceus - Asparagus Fern. These beautifully delicate and elegant plants boast tiny fronds and needles that appear fluffy and soft to the touch.

From the genus Asparagus, despite its common name, this plant is actually not a fern! It does have a similar appearance to them though. It grows long-reaching stems that weep down and sprawl out. Its attractive foliage makes it a sought after plant in contemporary homes. 

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 there may be too much water present. To help correct this, remove the cork from 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 has a 10cm opening enclosed with a cork lid. They are 18cm tall.
