A terrarium is a sealable glass container containing soil and plant. Terraria are often kept as a decorative and ornamental item. In a city like Mumbai where there is a lack of place even to keep the planters in the windows, a terrarium in a vivid glass container would not only add beauty to your home décor but also satisfy the gardening enthusiasts!!!
Closed Terraria create a unique environment for plant growth as the transparent walls allow both heat and light to enter. The sealed container combined with heat entering allows the creation of small water cycle. When the temperature increases, moisture from both, Plant and soil evaporates and then condenses on the wall and eventually falls back on the plant and soil.
