This is why you can only put certain kinds of plants in a closed terrarium.
They must love warm, moist, and humid environments
1. Carnivorous Plants
Many carnivorous plants are native to bog-like environments. They love to be constantly moist and appreciate full sun.
(By the way, I've got ya covered—my full blog post has links to where you can find these closed terrarium plants!)
OK, now back to the plants!
2. Nerve Plant
Nerve plants appreciate bright, indirect light, as well as maintaining consistent soil moisture.
3. Lemon Button Fern
They love bright to medium, indirect light, and staying consistently moist. They do great in humid environments!
There are many different kinds of moss but most prefer a warm, humid environment.
Moss is perfect for designing a mini landscape in your terrarium!
5. Baby Tears
Baby Tears like bright to medium, indirect light and remaining consistently moist.
They are another great choice for creating mini landscapes!
They need bright to medium, indirect light, and they do not like to dry out!
Tip: There are many popular Syngonium varieties—those lighter in color need brighter light.
7. Aluminum Plant
Aluminum plants appreciate bright, indirect light. And yep, you guessed it—keep the potting mix moist!
Pothos are the ultimate low-maintenance plants. Give them bright to medium, indirect light and don't let the potting mix dry out.
9. Maidenhair Fern
Another beautiful fern! This one has a delicate, lacy look!
Give the maidenhair bright, indirect light and even moisture.
10. Mini Orchids
Mini orchids like medium to bright, indirect light and humidity. Water your orchid when its potting medium is dry (yes, a little different from the other plants on this list!).
Try creating an orchid terrarium instead of putting them with plants that like a moist medium. How beautiful would that be?
When choosing your closed terrarium plants, they need to like moisture, humidity, and warm temperatures.
