How resilient are the SunGrow Hanging Glass Terrariums?
Handcrafted with reliable borosilicate glass, the sturdy hanging orbs are incredibly heat-resistant and able to withstand temperatures from -4° to 302° Fahrenheit (-20° to 150° Celsius). This means that these beautiful decorative terrariums are perfect for frigid cold climates or a burning hot desert habitat. Keep in mind that these hanging terrariums are still glass and may crack or break if dropped directly onto a hard surface, so it is important to use caution while handling them.
What types of plants grow in these spherical orbs?
At a size of 3.45″ (8.75cm) tall with a 2.4″ (6cm) diameter, the transparent glass globes from SunGrow is perfect for low maintenance plants such as succulents, miniature shrubs, small ferns, grasses and creepers. Particularly great inside the hanging terrariums are the very easy to care for bromeliads or tillandsia air plants.
Is there any maintenance required?
The attractive hanging glass terrariums act as mini greenhouses by collecting the water vapor released by plants and soils onto their interior walls. The water then trickles down into the soil providing the plants with the hydration and nutrients that they need. Practically a self-nourishing habitat, your hanging glass terrarium may require no maintenance or possibly an additional watering every 3-6 weeks depending on the plants you have inside.
Can I use the glass balls for other projects?
The transparency and spherical shape of these glass orbs make them an excellent addition to many creative DIY projects. Think beyond just plants and add colorful pebbles and flowers to create a mini fairy garden or sea shells and potpourri for unique table centerpieces at a party. As a handmade, tranquil hanging decor (for both indoor and outdoor areas), the spherical orbs make original, thoughtful gifts for friends or relatives.
