Terrarium Bowls Melbourne
Just as some people prefer fish bowls to rectangular aquariums, there are plenty of people who prefer the shape of terrarium bowls.
The advantage of a bowl terrarium is that it provides a 360 degree view of the plants inside it. The only possible disadvantage is that it may require more space (square or rectangular terrariums can be built right into a wall) but whether or not this is a problem depends on where you're installing it.+ Read More
Terrarium bowls as a creative space
Terrarium bowls can be an exciting way to show off a variety of small plants in a single space. Some people even go to the trouble of creating exotic "landscapes" within the terrarium.
Among the most unusual ideas we've seen in the latter category include a Zen garden terrarium and a tiny "golf course" terrarium (which was actually, in a way, playable).
Of course this kind of effort requires an extraordinary devotion to the art of terrarium building. Most people won't want to invest that much time and effort into their own terrarium, and that's perfectly fine. Your terrarium should be whatever you want it to be.

Facts about terrariums bowls
Terrariums are the ideal way to grow plants indoors. They require very little maintenance and care, and they provide the plants with protection.
When they are done well, terrariums can be objects of great beauty, but even a modest terrarium design can improve the ambience of a room.
In general, bowl style terrariums tend to be more ornamental than their rectilinear counterparts. Just how creative you can get is determined by the bowl size and your personal level of ability. If you are just starting out with terrariums it's probably best to notch up some experience before getting really ambitious.
While it's incredibly easy to care for terrarium plants, the following tips should help you avoid the more common beginner mistakes:
- Avoid excess watering. Terrarium plants are different from most regular potted plants. Watering too much can damage the roots and deplete soil nutrients.
- When you have a closed terrarium, it's a good idea to give it a brief ventilation session once a week, although this is not strictly necessary.
- Try to avoid overcrowding the terrarium. Remember the plants will grow and they need a bit of room for expansion.
- Don't use herbicides for weed control. In the unlikely event that weeds somehow find their way into the terrarium, removing them manually is the much safer option.
