In the simplest of terms, a Terrarium is a glass container, enclosed or open which will grow and display plants.
The original idea was to have specific plants in a near-perfect, controlled environment for study and observation. Over the passage of time, terrariums became objects to enjoy and display and took on a more decorative meaning. Terrariums are “Not just for Botanists, anymore.”

An open Terrarium

Typically, the closed terrarium is used for more tropical types of plants that require humidity to thrive. Mosses, ferns, orchids and some air plants, (tillandsias), work great in this kind of environment, and are largely the reason that terrariums were used…WAY back in the day.

Now, the open terrariums…that’s a different story… The open terrariums are used for dryer climate-oriented plants or plants that need the air circulation and a regulation of the amount of moisture that stays in the terrarium itself. Succulents, cacti or any other type of “full sun” variety needs the open terrarium to do well and flourish.

It seems that terrariums have only recently become popular but they have been around since before the Victorian Age.

Now… Little Prince of Oregon is offering them to you!
