Perfect for planting succulents or housing tillandsia (air plants).
Growing up I was constantly outside in my mother's garden, helping gather fresh vegetables and harvest flowers to scatter around the house. There's even video of me dangerously weeding with a fork. 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.
The "Air" terrarium is loosely based on an octahedron, a shape which the ancient Greeks identified with the air element. This terrarium has a versatile shape, allowing you to hang it up or sit it on any surface. It has one opening at the front. It will arrive as a kit, with almost everything 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! This style is great for succulents or other small plants.
This terrarium either comes in silver or with a copper patina, so please let me know your preference when ordering. (see third photo for color options). Chains for hanging available here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ABJglassworks?section_id=11386887
This terrarium is also available without a kit. Please contact me for details.
