Welcome to the small world enclosed in glass. And a small world is exactly what you're going to be creating when you plant a terrarium or wardian case. Of course, terrariums come in many different shapes and sizes, and you'll need to adjust this procedure to suit your specific mini-environment.
Terrariums are grown for many reasons and they come in a surprising range of shapes and sizes. But for any of your terrarium needs, H Potter is the place where you can find the one you are looking for. We are also the place where you can find all the essential materials you need to build one from scratch. Visit our outlets and you'll meet terrarium experts who will guide you in crafting a themed, selfcontained terrarium. Or you can take any of the unique works they have already completed and continue caring for the encapsulated flora in your home or office.
Why do we part with things we meticulously cared for and why do we share the secrets of our craft? Rooted in strong family traditions, H. Potter remains committed to its core values of quality, craftsmanship and uniqueness. We also believe that sharing the secrets of how to grow things beautifully ensures that enough people will love and celebrate the different aspects of nature and continue crafting and sharing things that are ultimately derived from its bounty.
Wearing gloves (and keeping them on throughout the planting process), spread a layer of 3/8 inch river stone or pebbles on the bottom Wardian case.
Using horticultural charcoal pieces, add a heaping teaspoon (or more, if you've got a large surface to cover) to the pebbles and mix pebbles and charcoal thoroughly together and make it roughly level.
On top of that layer, add a 2 – 2 ½ inch layer of pre-moistened(not drenched, but lightly moistened) African violet potting soil or any light potting soil.
When the terrarium is completely planted, water it lightly with a watering can (Do Not Mist!) and put on the lid. Condensation is normal, and should not be wiped off.
Place in a window that enjoys indirect light indoors.
It's as simple as that! For further maintenance, I suggest ventilating every two weeks or so, airing out the terrarium for a few hours. Then close up the terrarium.
If condensation forms on the glass, it's good to go on autopilot for another couple of weeks (monitor it for dryness during that time).
If no condensation forms on the glass after it has been ventilated, open it and water lightly with a watering can (I repeat: Do Not Mist!), then close it up.
Terrariums don't need fertilizer after all, you want your small world to remain small.
