Recommendations for working with plexiglas : 1. Always first use a small drill bit, for example, 2mm. If you immediately drill large, then plexiglass can crack. After that, you can enlarge the hole with a larger drill. 2. Always place the plexiglass on the wooden bar where the hole will be. If you drill, leaving it “in the air”, then the Plexiglas will sag and may crack. 3. Do not overdo it when tightening the bolts, the Plexiglas may crack. 4.Fix the corners on the long sides of the florarium with bolts and nuts.

5. After the corners are attached to the long sides of the florarium, attach two side walls to one of them, then attach a second long wall to them. Carefully, at this stage, the whole structure is especially fragile and easily “walks”. Any strong bend can break plexiglass.

6. Now for the bottom and top of the florarium you can collect rectangles from the corners, which will insert INSIDE the boxes from Plexiglas. 7. Secure the rectangles from the corners inside the plexiglas box with bolts and nuts. The side that touches the plexiglass can be lubricated with a transparent sealant. 8. Lubricate the corners of the future of the bottom of the sealant, put a plastic sheet on top, which will be the bottom, fix it, for example, lean on the wall. Drill 2-4 holes through the bottom and corners, fix the bottom with bolts.For reliability, drill a few more holes on each side and also secure with bolts.  making a florarium

To control the humidity, you can also install a fan and a hygrometer. To do this, you must: • drill holes for fastening the fan with long bolts; • • make a large “window” in the wall of the florarium. To do this, drill a few large holes around the perimeter of the future "window", and cut the plexiglass with a heated knife.  making a florarium
