Problems with Terrariums

If you've ever made a terrarium, or are interested but haven't done it yet, you may have discovered or considered they're not always maintenance free.  Depending on the plants chosen, soil sterility at time of planting, size of your jar's opening, light exposure, etc... you may run into problems with grey mold, fungus gnats, slime, or inexplicably sad-looking plants.  Follow the link below for a really great Q&A providing advice on terrarium problems.  And don't let the problems discourage you.  You can always clean out your container and start over, but if you've had a bug or fungal problem try to sterilize your container before replanting.  Good luck!
