Ficus pumila variegated, also known as variegated creeping fig, is a popular houseplant that can also thrive in a terrarium environment. Here are some tips on how to care for Ficus pumila variegated in a terrarium:

  • Lighting: Ficus pumila variegated prefers bright, indirect light. Place your terrarium in a well-lit area, but avoid direct sunlight which can scorch the leaves.

  • Soil: Use a well-draining soil mix that is rich in organic matter. The ideal mix should consist of a combination of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark.

  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ficus pumila variegated thrives in high humidity, so mist the plant regularly.

  • Temperature: Keep the terrarium in a warm, humid environment with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C).

  • Fertilizer: Use a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer).

  • Pruning: Ficus pumila variegated is a fast-growing plant and can quickly overtake a terrarium if not pruned regularly. Trim back the vines as needed to keep the plant in check.

Overall, Ficus pumila variegated is a great plant for terrariums and can add a unique touch to your indoor garden. With proper care, it can thrive and bring joy to your space.
