1. They’re easy to maintain

A terrarium is a self-contained ecosystem, which means you don’t need to water or fertilize it. If you want to make a terrarium with succulents, the only rule of thumb is that they like bright and warm conditions, and terrariums provide these conditions. Some terrarium plants like ferns and mosses do best with a bit of watering every week or two.

Terrariums also appear to be more forgiving than most other small gardens, because they’re enclosed. As such, terrariums are an excellent option for people who may not have time to constantly care for their plants!

2.They’re great for those with allergies

Terrariums can be a great option for people with allergies because terrariums are able to eliminate all the allergens that might be present at home. Terrestrial terrarium plants of choice include ferns, mosses, and alpines which do not shed spores or pollinate. Mosses and ferns also act as humidity buffers to maintain desirable levels inside terrarium.

3.They bring the outdoors in

Terrariums add greenery and nature to your home, and bring the outdoors in. When terrarium plants are introduced, they have a tendency to absorb moisture from the porous terrarium walls. This will give the terrarium a natural, moist environment. It will also keep the terrarium at a warm and cozy temperature for terrarium plants like ferns and mosses that thrive in these conditions.

4.No plants required! (perfect for beginners!)

Terrariums are terrarium plants that have dirt, rocks, and water. They are easy to start with because they don’t need any plants. All you need is terrarium soil! This makes it ideal for beginners. In fact, anyone can build and enjoy their very own terrarium… from novices to experts!

5.They can be displayed anywhere

Terrariums can be displayed anywhere in your home. They can be displayed on a windowsill, terrarium shelf, terrarium table, or even on the floor. They can also be beautiful when placed with flowers or other decorative objects so they provide sensory stimulation.
