A desert terrarium requires exactly the opposite conditions to a humid tropical one. It features succulents and cacti, which will appreciate a dry, arid environment that mimics their native desert.
This terrarium doesn’t need much watering, and it definitely should not be sealed in a jar!
Indirect filtered bright light
- Cacti tend to be even more susceptible to rot than succulents. Take extra care not to over-water.
- Cacti need very bright light to thrive. They should be fine to receive direct light.
- As always, there are exceptions to the above rules.
