A FUN-GIDE TO YOUR OWN TERRARIUM

Moss? Isn’t that like mold or something..?

That is absolutely not true! A misconception is that mosses and molds
are related. Molds on one hand are destructive, but certainly not mosses. Moss is a terrestrial plant has been hanging around since.. the beginning of time. Well, at least for almost 350 million years. Mosses are the first plants to emerge from oceans and conquered land – let’s just say that back then land plants and trees were the new kids on the block.
Mosses play a vital role in regulating nature’s ecosystems as they
facilitate an important exchange system for other plants, which thrive
alongside and benefit from the water and nutrients that mosses collect.
Mosses also control flooding, stabilize soils and provide small creatures
a nice and cosy shelter.

 

So, err how often should i water them?

Despite this common impression, moss is actually one of the most drought tolerant plants. Also, there are a number of species that need regular periods of dryness to survive.

  • False –Moss spores may be as common as mold spores or pollen at times,but they are generally non-allergenic.
  • First of all, do get a sprayer, do not pour water in.
  •  Mist lightly every two to three weeks with filtered /distilled or rain water  (only if dry). Closed lid terrarium provides self-sustaining environment which helps cycle water and retain humidity levels. If fogging appears (it means too much humidity), simply remove the lid to allow evaporation and replace it. Open your lid once in awhile ( This allow fresh air to cycle within ). * Repeat

Yikes, there’s water droplets in the terrarium?

Not to worry, that just means that humidity levels are a tad high which is a common sight in tropical Asia. This is known as fogging and when that happens, simply remove the lid to ventilate. It’s also good to occasionally remove the lid for a quick while to allow some fresh air in.

Most of the times however do keep the lids closed as it helps cycle water and retain humidity levels – its pretty much a self-sustaining mini ecosystem going on.

Where should it be placed?

Avoid putting it in direct sunlight, this can lead to too much humidity, and mold development. Most varieties of our moss thrive best indoors under bright artificial light (room/office lights is great!) or indirect sunlight. Shady spots indoors are also ideal but not totally dark.

OMG HELP. It turns brown! what should i do?

Here’s a tricky part.
First, Moss may turn brown because there are too much chlorine in the water, so make sure you are using the right water. Secondly, they may be lack of light (Moss are plants anyway), so move them to a brighter area but not directly under sunlight. Lastly, you may reset the humidity by opening up the lid and misting it slightly, do not drown it, too much water might
fog up and cause mold to appear.
