The Toronto office terrarium garden is a glass container garden used instead of the normal plant garden. It acts like an aquarium.

How to make a terrarium garden  

You need to have the following:

  • Glass vessels that are transparent.
  • Pebbles or small stones to be placed at the base of the container to ensure that water doesn’t get retained at the bottom of the glass which may cause root rot.
  • Activated charcoal is not only used to keep away bacteria buildup but also keep water fresh.
  • Potting soil which is the most essential layer of the terrarium.
  • Plants. To complete the terrarium, you need plants. Most suitable ones are cacti, succulents and air plants.
  • In addition to that, you need gardening tools that will be used in plant maintenance.

Factors to consider when selecting plants for Toronto office terrarium gardens         

  1. In the first place, choose plants that are small enough for your terrarium. Avoid cramping your terrarium.
  2. Similarly, choose plants that love humidity, especially air plants. Although succulents and cacti do not love humidity, you can replace that by slightly opening the container lid.

How to maintain terrarium gardens

  • Lighting

They prefer medium lighting. If they get too much lighting, they will burn. Similarly, if they get less lighting, they will have a stunted growth.

  • Watering

Allow the topmost layer of soil to dry up before adding water. However, do not over water to prevent root rot. Do not under water too to prevent wilting.
