A bioactive terrarium is one that contains both plants and animals. In this case, we’ll be adding springtails, Cubaris murina woodlice and Pink Dragon Millipedes (Desoxytes planata). The microfauna consumes decaying plant matter turning it into waste which then helps fertilise the plants. In time the animals multiply and the terrarium becomes a vibrant miniature ecosystem
