Terrarium: A Living Landscape under Glass

 

Planting a terrarium, a garden in a glass, is a rewarding green thumb project that will provide hours of enjoyment during winter season in some western countries. The result may be a delightful miniature, self-sustaining living landscape, or a dramatic setting for one or more favorite plants.

Inside a closed terrarium, you’ll notice many different natural processes: photosynthesis, respiration, and water cycle. The water inside the terrarium is constantly recycled, passing from the liquid form to gas and back again. When the moist, in the air condenses on the glass walls, it returns to the soil and is absorbed by the plants’ roots.

Any clear glass container that can be covered may be converted into a terrarium. It could be a long aquarium, a cookie or jam jar, a wine bottle or if you prefer more stylish, you can also use one that pleases your desire. If it is your first terrarium to make, you may use a large container, such as an aquarium because you can work in it with ease. Once you are already starting to plant, you can try your skills in planting with smaller containers which requires flexible fingers and slender instruments to put plants through the openings.

Making or owning a terrarium can also be a form of recreational activity. It can provide relaxation to the owner since it gives peaceful scenes of nature even when people are indoor. Terrarium is also beneficial to the health because it is believed that it is capable of absorbing pollution from cigarette smoke and other pollutants that can lead to diseases. Likewise, it can lessen the amount of pollutant gases in the air and absorbs radiation of electronic devices at home. Creating a terrarium is also business advantageous alternative because it is a unique creation of ornamental plants that are beautifully and purposely made which have the possibility to be sold and used as designs for home beautification.

Indeed, in this modern life that we have, people and most of the youth often takes time to spend it in their leisure activities rather than doing something productive like doing a terrarium. Having the activity not just only improves that well-being of the youth but it also provides time for them to seek serenity in the busy life in the city.
