A terrarium is a collection of small plants growing in a transparent or sealed glassed container to keep an ecosystem in a small scale. Terrariums are extremely low-maintenance and require little watering. No live animals or insect are kept in the jar, it’s purely a miniature garden. Within the glass transparent environment, sunlight is still able to penetrate the vegetation causing the water vapors to rise, the vapors is trapped on the roof and drops at night as temperature cools creating a cycle of water. The cycle allows for life to flourish creating a self sustained eco-system.
WHAT ARE SUCCULENTS?
Succulents are plants having some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. In horticultural use, the term “succulent” is often used in a way which excludes plants that botanists would regard as succulents, such as cacti. Succulents are grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance.
