So long as you carefully follow our instructions your terrarium should remain healthy. However, plants do naturally decay / die and they may shed leaves so that they may grow anew.

If any plants or moss in your terrarium die within 3 weeks of purchase we will send you replacement plants for free providing you have carefully followed our care instructions.

Various species of insect such as springtails, isopods and millipedes are suited to the terrarium environment.
