How often do I water my terrarium?

Your terrarium will not require any watering if it is closed or sealed. If you have an open terrarium you will want to allow the soil to completely dry out between watering. When you do water your terrarium, make sure that you are thoroughly watering the plants. To read more about watering your terrarium, click here.
