ESSENTIAL FOR PHOTOSYNTHESIS

Light is absolutely crucial for your PETIT JARDIN to survive and thrive. Place your PETIT JARDIN ideally next to window, or close to the window without receiving direct sunlight. You can also supplement the light with a “plant” light bulb shining on to the PETIT JARDIN.

Do not, under any circumstances, allow direct sunshine on the PETIT JARDIN. The magnifying effect caused by the glass walls of the jar can increase its internal temperature and dry out the PETIT JARDIN, as well as burn the plants!

To ensure uniform growth on all side, remember to turn your PETIT JARDIN around once per month.

Temperature

TROPICAL CLIMATE

Your terrarium contains plants that bloom in warm humid environments. Therefore, it is advisable to have your composition in a room whose temperature is between 15 and 27 ° C. If the temperature exceeds this threshold, keep the jar open and make sure keep the plant humid until the temperature decreases.

Watering

USE MOSS AS AN INDICATOR

If you follow these instructions, your composition will need to be watered only a few times a year, due to its own water cycle. The moss and soil will serve as indicators of moisture. As long as they remain wet to the touch, you will not have to water your composition.

Do not hesitate to gently lift the moss to make sure. It is when the earth becomes dry to the touch that it is time to water the whole. Make the most diffuse watering possible (using non-calcareous water: distilled, rain or mineral water) at the base of the tree and plants. You can also water on the gravel but avoid watering the moss. The amount of water needed will depend on the size of the container.

Do not in any case use tap water to water the PETIT JARDIN. The high levels of calcium will choke the plant, which could result in its death !

Condensation

BEWARE OF EXCESS

If you see mould developing in your PETIT JARDIN, then there is probably too much water. In that case, or if there is excess condensation on the walls of your jar (or if water accumulates and stagnates in the bottom), do not hesitate to remove the lid about 24 hours so that the excess humidity evaporates. Preventing the development and spread of small moulds that contributes to the good development of plants.

TRIM SOME LEAVES WHEN NECESSARY

Feel free to cut the plants of your composition slightly when their leaves touch the walls of glass. Cut the leaves at their base and leave the lid of the jar open for 24 hours for good healing of plants. If the leaves touch the side of the jar, there is a risk that they may rot.
