The Difference Between Open and Closed Terrarims
What makes terrarium building such a popular service? No two are alike! There is so much room for creativity and expression when creating your terrarium. At our Terrarium Bar, there are customization options every step of the way. One of the first choices you will need to make is whether to build an open and closed terrarium. This choice will affect which plants you can choose, as each one supports a different type of plant.
Open terrariums are, well…exactly what they sound like. Whether it’s a hole at the top or a cutout on either side, open terrariums expose your plants to the room’s atmosphere, allowing them to enjoy a drier climate. This type of terrarium is best for:
- Desert plants
- Air Plants
- Jade Plants
Your other option is to create a closed terrarium. This means that your plants are completely enclosed within your terrarium, either through a glass cloche or a terrarium with a closed cap or door. This seclusion creates a more humid environment, making it ideal for:
- Tropical plants!
- Small Palms
- Nerve Plants
- Polka Dot Plants
- Carnivorous Plants
