So I got a small beaker sized dessert terrarium as a gift. I dont know what the plants are at all... I was instructed to water it with a spray bottle once a week with one or two sprays. I was doing this until a portion of one of the plants shriveled up and dried out. So how often should i water it? The plant that dried out some is the bigger green one (the one on top in the top picture)... Thanks!

With desert plants, I water the soil near the plant, let it dry out, then water it again. You can tell when the soil dries because of it's glass sides. The roots are likely not getting sufficient water from just misting it. Letting the soil dry out between watering is important because it inhibits fungal growth, which desert plants typically have poor immunity to.
