Open terrariums / hanging pots
Light: Indirect sunlight or under normal indoor lighting about 30cm away.
- Pots with holes underneath: Water thoroughly weekly or whenever the soil feels dry by touch.
- Pots without holes underneath (terrariums): One teaspoon of water around each plant weekly.
- Air plants: Spray water on plants once in 2 or 3 days.
Commonly used plants:
Cacti are associated with the desert. The desert-dwelling variety of cacti can survive for really long periods of time without rainfall. They get their moisture from dew or mist and store nutrients and moisture in their tissues.
The word “succulent” means “juicy.” Succulent plants have leaves or stems that are filled with juices, the stored water and nutrients that allow the plant to grow. These leaves allow the plant to withstand harsh conditions.
There are more than 650 types of air plants that can grow—and thrive—without soil. They use their roots only for attaching themselves to rocks, trees, shrubs, and the ground.
Strictly no direct sunlight.Water:
Keep lid closed to create high ambient humidity. Mist water weekly.Commonly used plants:
These velvety cushions aren’t regular plants; they’re bryophytes, which mean they don’t have regular roots, flowers or seeds. They get their nutrients and moisture directly through their leaves from the air around them.
Fittonia is a lovely plant with delicately veined, deep green leaves. They are difficult to raise as conventional houseplants; they require very high, constant humidity but cannot stand stagnant conditions.
In most cases, when cacti or succulents has turned black, it is a goner. But if you want to try your luck, cut away the black and brown roots and leave the plant out of its pot to dry. Pause watering for air plants & moss.
It is usually to save an underwatered plant than the overwatered ones. Obvious wrinkles will be found on cactus or succulents. Increase the frequency of watering but do not drown them.
Plants with insufficient light will seem stretching to get more light and causes the plant to go out-of-shape. Try putting the plants near some light. Most likely they won't go back to their original shape but at least it will not worsen.
Overly exposed to direct sunlight
Discoloration will occur when the plants are under harsh sunlight. Some parts of the plant may get sunburn too. Move the affected plants to a shaded area immediately.
