Maintenance of the plants in jars:
- Avoid large temperature differences. Ideally the plant develops perfectly at a temperature between 18 ° and 26 ° C (without sudden change of temperature).
- Direct contact with the sun should be avoided. Ideally, it will please a few meters from a window while enjoying the full light
- Open the jar every 4 to 5 weeks for 12 to 24 hours.
- When opening the jar, gently touch the substrate and moisten it slightly if it is too dry.
What to do if "weird things" happen:
- A leaf begins to brown or blacken: open the jar and cut the sick leaf with scissors (very) clean; remove the sheet from the jar and check if the substrate is not too wet or dry. If it is too wet, leave the jar open as long as it dries. If it is too dry, moisten slightly.
- The walls of the jar is permanently covered with condensation. Open the jar and air for 24 to 48 hours.
- A small ball of (often) white foam appears on the plant. Open the jar; cut the mousse and leave the jar open for 24 to 48 hours.
- The jar has been shaken for one reason or another and dirt or pieces of moss are stuck to the wall. Open the jar and rub the inside of the glass with a tissue or paper towel (very) clean; check the humidity of the substrate and close.
What to do if it's too late:
A terrarium is a living space. After a while (about 6 to 10 months) your plant will become too big for its environment. You can remove it and try to keep it as a houseplant.
If the plant dies and dies; open the jar only outside. A (very strong) smell of rotten will emerge. It will be necessary to throw the interior and clean the jar in depth. Personally, I rinse it and put it in the dishwasher. The jar will always be useful for a lot of things.
