Terrariums: Frequently asked questions

What types of Terrariums are there and what determines a good product?

There are two main types of terrariums. The first is a closed terrarium, which means that it has no opening for air to enter or exit the container. This type of Terrarium can be kept in any room and will not need to have its environment changed at all as long as there is enough light inside the enclosure (usually from an incandescent bulb). Closed terraria do require more frequent watering than open ones because they don’t allow water vapor to escape into the atmosphere like open ones do.

The second type of Terrarium is called an Open Air Terarrium, also known as a “Reptile Tank”. These containers usually consist of clear plastic with screened vents on top so heat and humidity can escape but insects cannot get back in again once they leave through those same holes. Because these tanks are vented, you must keep track if your temperatures within them by using thermometers placed around their interiors so you know when it’s time to mist/spray them down with water or turn up/down your heating device(s) accordingly.

A good terrariums is one that has a healthy environment for the plants. This means it needs to have enough light, water and nutrients. The most common problem with terrariums is over watering which can lead to root rot or mold growth on the soil surface. Another common mistake made by beginners in making their own Terrariums are using too much fertilizer (especially chemical fertilizers) which will cause algae growth on top of your soil layer as well as burning out your plant roots from being exposed to high levels of nitrogen and phosphorous compounds found in synthetic fertilizers like Miracle Grow Potting Mixes used commonly sold at Home Depot, Lowes etc..

Who should use a Terrariums?

Anyone who wants to grow plants, but doesn’t have the time or space for a garden.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Terrariums?

You should buy a Terrariums that has top quality. To ensure this you must consider the materials and assembly of a Terrariums. On the other hand, I would suggest you to get a new one if it is already worn out or not functioning properly.

Make sure you check the specification of a Terrariums before buying it. There is more than one available on the market, and each has its own features that should be taken into consideration. Some are made from glass while others have acrylic panels; some come with LED lights while others do not; there are also those which can accommodate both reptiles and amphibians or just one type of pet etc. You need to look at these details so as to get what will work best for your needs.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Terrariums?


The main advantage of a terrarium is that it allows you to grow plants in places where they would not normally be able to survive. This can include areas with little light, or areas which are too cold for the plant’s natural environment. Another major benefit is that due to their small size and enclosed nature, terrariums require very little maintenance compared to other types of gardens such as outdoor vegetable patches or flower beds.


The biggest disadvantage of a terrarium is that it can be difficult to maintain the correct humidity levels. This will depend on what you are growing in your terrarium and how much water they require, but if you don’t get this right then your plants could die or become very unhealthy.
