Terrarium is a lovely looking piece of decoration. While mostly terrarium contains tropical plants, it doesn’t mean a winter terrarium cannot be made.
Terrariums are taken from the Latin word of earth ‘terra’and aquarium. The concept is identical to the aquarium itself, unless it is not using water or aqua, but soil. Terrariums are primarily for plants. The interior of a terrarium will be earthly things such as rocks, pebbles, charcoal, potting soil, and the plant itself. The containers are mostly made of clear glass.
Terrariums are very popular decoration pieces. There are many types of terrariums according to the season. Some decorative terrariums don’t even have plants in it. Hence, for the winter, the best decoration piece is surely a winter theme terrarium.
