Sample text

In the summer, 6 to 8 hours a day of sun is best—since terrarium glass concentrates heat, pull plants away from window during hottest weather. Using distilled or rainwater for best results, apply about 1/2 cup of water per week or more as needed to keep soil wet (never allow pitcher plants to dry out). No need to fertilize: carnivorous pitcher plants obtain nutrients by capturing and digesting insects. If there are no fruit flies or other tiny insects in your home, pick up crickets from a pet shop (or capture your own insects) and drop one bug per week into pitchers.

If space isn’t an issue, you can let your imagination run wild. It’s fun to start with a big, spacious container if you haven’t made a terrarium before: the options for materials are greater, and temperatures within the terrarium will be more moderate and air flow better. There’s also a greater margin for error if you forget to water your terrarium or if it sits in too hot a spot one afternoon. By the same token, the smaller the terrarium, the smaller the margin of error—the plants will have less root space so lack of water can be more problematic, and a small enclosure will heat up faster if accidentally left in direct sun.

But there’s nothing wrong with starting with your materials and simply seeing where they take you. The pleasure of the whole process often lies in that experimentation. When applicable, container dimension details in this book are recorded as height x width x depth. Don’t worry if you aren’t able to find containers with the exact dimensions of those shown. —and might just discover an even better glass container and materials mix while you’re at it. Size In terms of size, nearly anything can work, from the tiniest spice jar on up.
