How to Make a Basic Terrarium
Care for your terrarium depends on the plants you use. I choose indoor plants that need filtered light. I check the soil regularly for dryness and water when the soil is no longer moist. For these terrariums I chose plants that I like, but some will not last forever in their terrarium homes. I think of terrariums as long term arrangements; eventually expect your plant buddies to grow out of their containers. You can repot them and replace with new, small plant babies.
