Different Glass Jar Types For Your Terrarium

Basic Information on Terrarium

A terrarium is essentially a mini garden in a bottle. There are two options that you can choose from – a closed terrarium or an open terrarium. Essentially, a closed terrarium requires ‘hardy’ plants that can thrive in harsh conditions (high humidity).  A closed terrarium is a terrarium that is covered with a lid, whereas an open terrarium is a terrarium that is not covered with a lid.

If you are looking to get your own bottles to make your terrarium, here at Ecoponics, we have terrarium supplies and do it yourself (DIY)kits. You can get one here.

With various terrarium designs out there, how do you ensure that yours is unique? One way to achieve a unique terrarium is to source for your own glass bottle!

The above is definitely not the most comprehensive lists of terrarium glass jars there are. In fact, the most unique terrarium designs are ones that have not been popularly discovered or those that are unconventional, requiring one to think out of the box!

A tip that we would like to share before starting on your terrarium projects is to weigh the pros and cons of having a closed/open terrarium, and decide which would be the best plants to insert into your terrarium.
