Terrarium Tales


Terrariums, clear enclosures with no drainage holes that mimic ecosystems by creating additional humidity, are a wonderful way to bring the power of nature into one’s very own home or in areas that would otherwise not be suited for plants. If properly designed, terrariums can be enjoyed for years even if they are occasionally neglected. This paper addresses what to consider when constructing one and explains the reasoning behind such considerations. The paper’s range of examples and techniques will give the reader the capacity to gain an accurate and deep intuitive understanding of a terrarium.
