9. There is water on a terrarium glass or it is fogged up? Why is this happening? What should I do in this situation?
With closed terrariums, you should open a lid from time to time for ventilation, and to wipe the glass. Avoid putting the terrarium under the sun, as it will cause a very high temperature inside the terrarium, causing fogged up glass. You can also spray your glass with anti-fog spray.

A deep and bigger terrarium would be the best.
12. Why do terrarium plants don’t need much water or fertilizing, but they still grow and remain healthy for a long time?
Plants in terrariums require misting and watering from time to time. As plants in this closed ecosystem use the water again and again (due to condensation), you don’t need to water them too often.
13. There are bugs in my terrarium! What should I do?
To get rid of bugs, make sure to throw away any dead rotting leaves on the soil. Also, make sure the soil is not too wet, and dry it with a tissue if needed.
14. What kind of lighting is best for my terrarium? Where should I place it?
It is best to place your terrarium somewhere with no direct sunlight as it will burn and ‘boil’ your plants inside the container. Putting your terrarium inside the room or near the window facing the weaker sun exposure site (indirect light) will be perfect.
15.How often should you water your terrarium? And how to do it?
Various techniques of watering are used, for example misting and submerging. Checking your soil before watering or misting is the main technique.
