DID YOU KNOW: enclosed terrariums are a self-contained ecosystem that can flourish for years without being opened or watered, being mindful that it needs proper light. Because of the enclosure, it allows the terrarium to recycle its water, carbon dioxide, and oxygen.

To water your terrarium, use a spray bottle and spray water down the glass sides, allowing the water to cascade down. Only use a spray bottle or mister, and do not pour the water in. Continue until the top layer of soil is wet but not waterlogged.
Terrariums are designed to keep reusing the water they are given. After watering, you should not have to repeat the process for at least a few weeks or months, if at all.
As tempting as it is, do not open the lid until it is necessary. A closed terrarium is its own ecosystem, and it needs very little outside input to grow. Ideally, the lid should stay closed unless something needs to go in or out (i.e. adding a new plant or cutting off an old branch, if you start to see mold growing). If you are regularly opening the lid to help the terrarium “breathe”, you are taking away the integrity of the terrarium to do the job itself.
