The Rest








Plant Care Instructions

Succulents

Most succulent plants prefer full sun, though remember that a terrarium concentrates heat, which can burn plants. Bright light is preferable, but move out of hot direct sun in the summer months.
A succulent will need to be watered just enough to wet the roots, but not gather water at the bottom. In our shop we pour about 1⁄4-1/2 cup of water slowly right over the top of the plant to insure the water goes directly down to the roots. They need to dry out in between waterings. If planted in sand this is usually once every 3 weeks.
They can be fertilized with a weak solution of balanced fertilizer during the growing season (usually, spring and summer).
 
Mossballs
About once a week thoroughly soak under tap water. Then let the mossball sit, half submerged, for 10-15 minutes. Most plants in mossballs like to dry out slightly between waterings so lightly squeeze the mossball to test for moisture and water just as it begins to feel dry. Add a quarter-strength dilute solution of balanced fertilizer to the soaking water during spring and summer when plants are growing.
 
Airplants
To keep a tillandsia healthy over the long term, you need to provide fresh air, bright natural light, and humidity or moisture. To water: submerge tillandsias every 1 to 2 weeks for an hour or up to 8 hours or so (overnight). Misting is helpful in very dry conditions but cannot make up for regular soaking. Fertilize by adding a pinch of Airplant fertilizer to the water when soaking in the spring and summer. Bright light, but not full sun in the hot summer is best.
 
Moss
Provide moss and lichen with bright but indirect light: it can be a challenge to maintain them for long in a terrarium that receives direct sun or too much shade. Moss and lichen will sometimes expire if their particular water and light needs are not met. Some mosses dry to an exquisite honey-green color. Others turn brown and if you don’t like the look, you may want to replace it.
Dyed reindeer moss needs no special care, as it is not a living material.
