How To Make A Plant Terrarium

An indoor terrarium can be a good decorative piece and also functions to freshen the air by changing out carbon dioxide for oxygen. Small terrariums function as mini-greenhouse, mimicking an ecosystem where water absorption and precipitation occurs. Plant terrariums hold in heat, as well as moisture and provide you with a ‘natural air freshener’. I […]
