What should I watch out for in the bottle garden? We give care instructions for a perfect ecosystem
The bottle garden is constantly evolving and reacts to external conditions. Just watch the lighting and condensation inside the bottle garden. The ideal state is achieved when the glass is slightly misted on one side in the morning and the other sides are clear. The fogging should resolve during the day.
If the moss loses its color and one side is no longer fogged in the morning, it is a sign that the bottle garden needs water. Add 50-100ml of water. After about 2 to 3 days, the moisture is evenly distributed in the soil. Then open the jar again for approx. 24 hours until the superficial moisture has evaporated. Repeat this process until the glass no longer steams up during the day. A slight misting in the morning is normal and shows that the biotope is working well. It is best to use lime-free water (mineral or rainwater). As a rule, the bottle garden should be watered 1-2 times a year.
Please note that the bottle garden must be in a bright place with as constant a room temperature as possible and not in direct sunlight. The north or east window is ideal.
