WATER

Water your succulent terrarium every 3-4 weeks. Use a dropper to evenly distribute the water among the base of each plant in the terrarium. We also recommend watering any pieces of wood within the terrarium. The moisture in the wood will slowly be absorbed by the leaves of any air plants inside. Remember, the worst thing you can do is overwater your terrarium. This will cause the plants to rot. Therefore, always err on the dry side. If the soil looks damp, or if there is any water pooling at the bottom of the glass vessel, watering is unnecessary. 

 AMOUNT OF WATER BY TERRARIUM SIZE

5" Terrarium..........................................................1/4 cup

8" Terrarium..........................................................1/2 cup

12" Glass Sphere Terrarium........................................................1 & 1/4 cup

 

LIGHT

Place your terrarium in a spot that gets bright, indirect sunlight. Near a window, or in a naturally bright room will best suit your new terrarium.
