How long with the terrarium last? As long as you properly take care of it using your “ Care instructions “ and your good judgment, it can last for many years to come (so much so, that you might have to move your plants to a larger container).

I accidentally overwatered my terrarium and it is not doing so well. What can I do now? Overwatering your terrarium or any living landscape can lead to mold, disease, and insects so it needs to be corrected, removing the mold infected area and trimming or replacing any infected plants, adding additional soil as needed (for non-air plant terrariums only).For succulent, moss, and tropical plant terrariums, drain any standing water for the terrarium and let dry out completely. Resume watering on a weekly schedule as needed. A good tip is to water your terrarium once a week (or every 7-10 days during colder months of the year) only when the soil is completely dry. For air plant terrariums

Can I place my terrarium in my office without any windows? Sure, you can place it anywhere indoors whether there is natural light or fluorescent light at least 7 hours a day.

How do I change the water in my Japanese Marimo Moss Ball Terrarium without messing up the arrangement? It is simple – when it is time to change the water, gently tilt the terrarium and empty 1/3rd of the water into a sink. Then replace the water back to its originally spot and you’re done. This allows the marimo to get fresh water while also allowing it to flourish.
