Glass Terrariums


Glass Terrariums Melbourne

The most common type of terrarium in existence is the glass terrarium. Other materials are sometimes used, but the superiority of glass makes it the ideal material for terrarium construction.

Some people think glass should be avoided due to its tendency to shatter when struck or dropped. This could actually be good advice if the terrarium is intended to be placed in the room of a very young child.

In every other case, however, the terrarium should be heavy enough not to be easily knocked over, and should be placed in a position where it is unlikely to be accidentally struck.

The benefits of glass terrarium

Despite its fragility, glass has many properties that make it the best choice for terrariums. The most important of these properties is the transparency of even quite thick glass, allowing light and heat in to the terrarium, and allowing us to easily see what is inside.

Glass also forms an effective seal to prevent moisture loss, which is important to maintaining the naturally controlled microclimate inside the terrarium. This feature is what allows the terrarium plants to survive with minimal watering.

Yet another attractive feature of glass is that it is easy to wipe clean, which is not true of transparent or translucent plastics such as perspex.
