Perfect for planting mosses or other plants that like humid environments.
Ever since I can remember my mother has cultivated a little moss garden, which we used to decorate the house during different times of the year. Unfortunately since I left home I have always lived in small apartments. With no outside space to satisfy my green urges, I began to create terrariums to bring the green inside.
This teardrop terrarium is modified so that is is entirely enclosed, with a hinged door to get inside. By keeping the door closed it creates a micro-environment, and within a few days of planting it will feel slightly humid inside the glass. This terrarium has a versatile shape, allowing you to hang it up or sit it anywhere you like. It will arrive as a kit, with almost all the supplies you need to get started. Inside the terrarium is a muslin pouch with pebbles, activated charcoal and a few suggestions for how to get your terrarium started. If you want to plant moss inside you will also find some tips on moss foraging. Besides moss, this is a great style for any humidity loving plants.
This terrarium comes in silver or with a copper patina, so please let me know your preference when ordering (see photos for color options). Chains are available here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ABJglassworks?section_id=11386887
Width: 4 1/4"
