Tips for Caring for a Terrarium at Our Apartments in Mount Dora, FL
Are you looking for a way to brighten up your Veranda apartment? Why not consider a terrarium? A terrarium is, put simply, a miniature ecosystem of plants. They can infuse your apartment with color and life, and, as an added bonus, these indoor ecosystems are easy to create, being as big or as small as you’d like. And, they’re a piece of cake to change up, depending on the season or your mood.
If you’re interested in creating a terrarium in your apartment, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:
• Your container must be clear glass or clear plastic, so that light can easily pass through it.
• For each terrarium you make, the plants you put inside must have similar environmental needs.
• Make sure to have a drainage layer, since terrariums do not have drainage holes. Depending on the height of the container, include one to four layers of drainage material, like crushed river gravel, small stones, and horticultural charcoal.
• Keep the area in and around your terrarium neat and tidy, cleaning up spills immediately if they occur.
Some of the more popular plants to keep in a terrarium include starfish plants, moss, golden clubmoss, creeping figs, spider ferns, and African violets, among others.
