Terrariums are miniature ecosystems usually kept in a clear sealable (or open) glass containers that can be opened for maintenance and to access the plants inside. Terrariums are often kept as decorative or ornamental items in a prominent place in the home.
create a unique environment for plant growth. The transparent walls allow for heat-generating light to enter the terrarium and create a small scale water cycle. This happens as moisture from both the soil and plants evaporates in the elevated temperatures inside the terrarium. This water vapor then condenses on the walls of the container, and eventually falls back to the plants and soil below, completing the balanced miniature ecosystem. In addition to this, the light that passes through the transparent material of the terrarium allows for the plants within to photosynthesize, an important aspect of plant life.
Come to the class and learn which plants to put together, creative ways to add additional items of inter-est and color, where to get the items you need, and how to get started.
