Whats the difference between terrariums and vivariums?

In short, terrariums are essentially miniature greenhouses that replicate a natural environment for living plants. What turns it into a vivarium is an animal to the miniature ecosystem (usually small reptiles such as geckos, frogs etc).

So if you intend to add an animal into your enclosure then you need a vivarium, however if you just want to stick to keeping plants you need a terrarium.
