Care Tips For Your New Terrarium

When you bring home a new terrarium, it is essential to ensure it gets the proper environment to thrive. Here's a guide to help you find the right spot for your terrarium and monitor it effectively:

Finding the Right Spot for Your Terrarium
1. Light Requirements:
Natural Light: Terrariums need light to thrive, preferably bright, indirect light for about 7-8 hours a day. Look for spots in your house that receive such lighting.
Artificial Light: If your home doesn't have a suitable spot with natural light, consider placing your terrarium near a source of artificial light. Grow lights can be a good alternative to ensure your plants get the light they need.

Monitoring Your Terrarium
2. Initial Monitoring:
Adaptation Period: When you first bring your terrarium home, its environment changes, and it might need some time to adapt. Pay close attention during the first few days.
Signs to Watch For:
Yellowing Leaves or Moss: This could indicate that your terrarium is not getting enough light. If you observe yellowing, try moving it to a brighter location.
Other Indicators: Keep an eye out for other signs of stress, such as wilting or mold growth, and adjust the light and humidity accordingly.

By carefully selecting the placement and monitoring the condition of your terrarium, you can ensure it remains healthy and vibrant.
