How to Care for Your Hanging Terrarium

Keep in mind your plants will thrive only if there is sufficient light. Hang your little terrariums near a window, but away from direct sunlight. Glass will magnify the sun’s rays and damage tender tropicals.

Whether growing in pebbles, sand or moss, you want to keep the roots moist at all times.

Growing air plants? They’re not planted, so you can take them out of the terrarium to water. Thoroughly wet the plant with room-temperature water, then
return it to its terrarium. Avoid leaving standing water at the bottom of the terrarium because the roots will rot if kept too wet.

Because their roots are so small, air plants take in moisture and nutrients through their leaves. Feed them with
a foliar spray fertilizer specially made for air plants.

That’s it! Care is easy. Your plants will flourish, nestled in their humid environment.
