WHAT IS A TERRARIUM?

Simply, it is a glass container, chiefly or wholly enclosed, for growing and displaying plants. The main idea behind the terrarium is to create a proper environment for plant growth, however they are often kept as decorative or ornamental items. Because of the different conditions within, terrariums can be classified into two types: closed and open.
Tropical plant varieties, such as mosses, orchids, ferns, and air plants, are generally kept within closed terrariums due to the conditions being similar to the humid and sheltered environment of the tropics.
Open terrariums are better suited to dry plants such as succulents and cactai. Not all plants require or are suited to the moist environment of closed terrariums. For plants adapted to dry climates, open, unsealed terrariums are used to keep the air in the terrarium free from excess moisture. Open terrariums also work well for plants that require more direct sunlight, as closed terrariums can trap too much heat potentially killing any plants inside.
Although it seems like terrariums have only recently become popular, they were actually designed with increasing intricacy and style and have been widely consumed as a decoration for the home since the Victorian age. Today, they became of part of the product design as a dynamic element in the modern home, while creating a tiny eco-system for everyone with a love of nature can easily deal with.
