Jaké rostliny můžete použít v teráriu.

Terrariums have gained popularity in recent years as miniature ecosystems that bring nature indoors, adding a touch of greenery to any space.


Whether you're a seasoned gardener or a novice plant enthusiast, terrariums offer a fascinating way to cultivate and showcase plants. However, choosing the right plants for your terrarium is crucial, especially when considering whether to opt for an open or closed terrarium setup. Let's explore some ideal plant choices for both types:

Open Terrarium Plants:

Open terrariums are containers with openings that allow air circulation, making them suitable for plants that prefer drier conditions. Here are some plants that thrive in open terrarium environments:

1. Succulents: Succulents are excellent choices for open terrariums due to their ability to store water in their leaves. Varieties like Echeveria, Haworthia, and Sedum add interesting textures and colors to your terrarium while requiring minimal maintenance.

2. Air Plants (Tillandsia): Air plants are unique because they don't need soil to grow. They absorb moisture and nutrients through their leaves, making them perfect for open terrariums. These plants come in various shapes and sizes, allowing for creative arrangements within your terrarium.

3. Cacti: Like succulents, cacti are drought-tolerant plants that thrive in arid environments. Their striking shapes and spines add visual interest to your terrarium. Opt for smaller varieties like Bunny Ear Cactus or Mammillaria for a compact terrarium display.

4. Spider Plants (Chlorophytum comosum): Spider plants are resilient and adaptable, making them suitable for various environments, including open terrariums. Their arching foliage and ability to produce offsets (spiderettes) make them visually appealing and easy to propagate.

5. Peperomia: Peperomias are compact, low-maintenance plants with thick, succulent-like leaves. Varieties such as Peperomia obtusifolia or Peperomia caperata add lush greenery to your terrarium while tolerating dry conditions.

Closed Terrarium Plants:

Closed terrariums are sealed environments that mimic a self-sustaining ecosystem, with high humidity levels and limited airflow. Here are some plants that thrive in closed terrariums:

1. Ferns: Ferns are classic choices for closed terrariums due to their love for high humidity and low light conditions. Maidenhair ferns, Button ferns, and Rabbit's foot ferns are popular options that add a delicate, lush feel to your terrarium.

2. Fittonia (Nerve Plant): Fittonias are known for their striking foliage with intricate vein patterns. These plants thrive in the high humidity levels of closed terrariums and come in various colors, including green, pink, and red.

3. Pilea Glauca or Pilea Depressa: Pilea, also known as the Friendship Plant or Panamiga, is a compact plant with textured leaves. It thrives in the humid environment of closed terrariums and adds a pop of green to your miniature ecosystem.

4. Baby's Tears (Soleirolia soleirolii): Baby's Tears are low-growing, spreading plants with tiny, round leaves. They create a lush carpet-like effect in closed terrariums and thrive in the high humidity levels provided by the sealed environment.

5. Mosses: Various species of mosses, such as Sheet Moss (Hypnum) or Mood Moss (Dicranum), are perfect for closed terrariums. They thrive in moist, shaded conditions and help maintain humidity levels while adding a natural, woodland charm to your terrarium. Our personal favorites are the bun moss which is included in our assortments of moss ready and prepared for you to make your own terrarium.

Consider the environmental conditions of your terrarium and the specific care requirements of each plant to ensure long-term success. With the right combination of plants, you can enjoy a piece of nature's beauty right in your own home.
