Terrarium is a pretty basic “clicker” or idle game. All purchases in the game increase your ability to earn more currency, which is used to purchase more abilities to increase currency, etc etc. Since you’re raising plants, Oxygen is the currency of the game, used to buy everything.
If it’s the first idle game you’ve played, it’s a pretty simple one and you shouldn’t have much trouble. You simply buy and “upgrade” plants and tap them to earn more currency, and also cast “skills” in the rainbow tab to, again, get more currency.
Being an idle game, the first thing to remember is that (almost) no mistakes are permanent. If you spend lots of oxygen, the only currency in the game, on something silly, it doesn’t matter much since you can just earn that oxygen back and spend somewhere else. Above all, don’t stress out and just relax.
Collecting currency also lets you “level up”, and level ups must be claimed by tapping the “level up” button in the top right corner, otherwise experience stops accruing until you do so. Leveling up unlocks plants and shelf space, and gives a bonus of Oxygen.
Just for fun/aesthetics, note you can turn on “night mode” (which literally makes it night ingame) in the gear menu, there’s almost no other settings for now.
