A florarium or terrarium for plants is a small container inside which plants grow. We advise making it of glass or dense translucent plastic or combine wooden models with transparent inserts. The florarium has a narrower opening at the top or side to maintain the microclimate inside the container. This opening is often entirely covered by a lid. It is recommended to use special containers for growing plants and all kinds of glass bottles, jars with lids, large wine bottles, bowls with a narrowed hole, laboratory flasks, or any other transparent vessels.
The general principle of the florarium is to maintain a more or less stable level of humidity and temperature. Special equipment for heating and lighting makes the florarium independent of natural light and heat sources. All this allows you to grow the most bizarre plants that require unusual conditions and care. If the florarium is entirely closed, it is necessary to ventilate it regularly to avoid condensation on the walls.
Aquariums, terrariums for turtles, snakes, and other animals can also be used. You can also use large round vases, bowls, and even regular glass cups or glasses. Such containers are open, so there is no separate microclimate in them. As a result, you need to monitor the temperature regime, regularly water and spray the plants, like ordinary potted greens.
The compactness of florariums is one of their significant advantages, especially for small apartments and small window sills. The variety of plants in the terrarium looks very stylish and unusual, especially against the background of standard potted plants.
No matter how slowly the plants grow, they will become cramped in a small container after a while. In this case, the flowers can be easily transplanted into pots, and you can fill the florarium with a new composition.
