Over watering will kill your terrarium.

Never place Closed terrarium in direct sunlight. The glass intensifies the heat and your plants may perish.

Occasional interior cleaning can be done with a paper towel.

Plants do not require oxygen....they produce it!

Your terrarium is alive and has cycles, some things may change colour, die and new growth will occur. Enjoy the magic before your eyes!

Mold can occur from time to time in high humidity areas.

Remove affected area with scissors (if possible).

Use spray provided on affected area twice a week.


Water at and around base of plant with syringe provided.

Use approx. 1-1.5 ozs per plant in OPEN/WOODLAND terrarium.
