Planting and care
You should use water-soluble organic fertilizer in little quantity. Don’t apply in large quantity; it will promote more vegetative growth. We maintain the small plant size in the terrarium. That’s the way we should control the vegetative growth.
If there is a need of re-potting then the potting media should be as follows a one and a half inch to two-inch layer in the bottom of the container. The soil should be porous to allow good drainage. It should be slightly moist for planting. You can use equal parts of garden soil, sand, and peat moss(1:1:1).
