A vintage glass decanter planted with Leucobryum moss, Pilea glauca, Ficus quercifolia, Begonia schulzei and Selaginella apoda. The plants inside this terrarium are rare and aren’t readily available in garden centers or plant nurseries, I have propagated them at my workshop in large tanks specifically designed for this purpose.
To keep this terrarium healthy, place in as bright a spot as possible but keep well out of direct sun. If that isn’t possible in your home you can use additional lighting in the form of CFL or LED bulbs which are readily available online. You can also purchase grow lights from Amazon, eBay or reptile specialists. For more information regarding lighting please get in touch.
Water sparingly and with a spray bottle. It is vitally important you do not overwater the terrarium. I always use the analogy that the substrate (soil) should look/feel like a damp sponge rung of all its water; imagine you are about to wipe a dusty surface down, that’s the level of moisture to aim for. If in doubt, underwatering is preferable to overwatering. If you are still in doubt, don’t hesitate to call, message or email me.
As with all my terrariums, if you have any issues please get in touch and I’ll endeavor to rectify any issues.
*I have numerous decanters to choose from.
