Terrariums are containers designed to grow houseplants and create a miniature ecosystem with water cycling, photosynthesis, and respiration processes.
If any animal is present in the container, rather than only plants, it is no longer a terrarium. It has become a Vivarium!
Terrariums are typically plant habitats enclosed in a container to take care of themselves. Vivariums need ‘help’ in creating the ideal environment for animals.
Animals need constant water and food supply, so you’ll need to provide filters and pumps if you raise them in vivariums.
