Begonias, croton, peperomia, creeping fig, selaginella, Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema), and maidenhair fern are ideally cultivated in warmer climates. A plant terrarium’s bottom layer is generally sand or big stones mixed with a tiny quantity of charcoal, with a layer of topsoil 2–3 centimeters (about 1 inch) thick above it.

 

PLEXIGLASS OR GLASS: WHICH IS BETTER FOR A GAZEBO GLASS TERRARIUM?

 

Which is better, glass or acrylic? The first major decision to make when picking a terrarium is the type of material to be utilized. Each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and depending on the circumstances, either material might be the best option. At first look, glass and acrylic appear to be comparable building materials, yet each has its own set of pros and limitations.

 

Acrylic

 
 
 

Pros

 

Acrylic, unlike glass, is a kind of plastic polymer. Acrylic is lighter than glass and insulates temperature better. This means that an acrylic terrarium will be less expensive to heat, which may be important for tropical species. Acrylic can also withstand some forms of damage, such as cracking, chipping, and shattering.

 
 
 

Cons

 

Acrylic may be scratched by sand, cleaning equipment, and even the animals themselves. To clean the terrarium without damaging it, specific cleaning equipment is required. When heated, it can melt, although most pet shop equipment, such as terrarium heaters, is acrylic-rated for safety

 

Glass

 

Pros

 

Glass terrariums are a popular choice among pet owners since they come in a range of sizes and forms and are simple to maintain. Glass tanks are less expensive than acrylic tanks, so more money may be spent on decorations and the animals that live within them. Furthermore, glass is highly resistant to cracking; very few things may harm a glass terrarium.

 
 
 

Cons

 

Glass aquariums are made up of discrete panes, whereas acrylic tanks are made up of a single, solvent-welded piece. If there is a considerable amount of water in the terrarium, glass terrariums are somewhat more likely to leak. Drilling acrylic is far less difficult than drilling glass. If the glass is drilled improperly, it might crack or shatter.
