Terrariums are becoming more and more incorporated with the trends these days as people seem to grow a liking towards minimalism. However, before we even get started, we need to know first what a terrarium is.
The word terrarium refers to a sealed glass container which includes soil and plants in it. These terrariums can contain several different plants to fit different themes. Furthermore, some people might even try to recreate landscapes in nature with these plants and some might even include flowers in terrariums. Nowadays, these terrariums are enclosed in small geometric shaped containers, some even open.
