How does an eternal terrarium work?

An eternal terrarium or garden in a bowl is a small natural ecosystem that is self-regulating and requires almost no care. Besides... it only needs to be watered once a year!

The key to these terrariums is their ability to self-regulate. The water that we pour into them at the time of making them already serves them to live the rest of the year. This is because the water follows its cycle inside the bowl itself: the sun heats the surface of the glass, which evaporates the liquid water turning it directly into gas, this through condensation becomes liquid and falls to water the bowl again. In Omotesando we elaborate them with a Ficus Ginseng and a Fitonia, these are beautiful inside a terrarium.

This type of terrariums are much easier to maintain than the open system or potted plants. The most important thing is to place the bowl in a place with indirect light. It can also be pruned to maintain the size of the ficus, the only thing to do is to cut a little bit the leaves that touch the glass.
