About

Succulent Terrarium Kits, Living Home Decor, & Concrete Giftware made to Empower

After a fair share of bad break-ups and a hard winter spent living with an ex in a dark apartment on an urban 4-lane highway, it was finally time for Big Changes.

FractalineTerrariums was born in rural south-western Ontario from Amelia’s parents’ basement. Far from ideal, but hey, even Steve Jobs didn’t start with a corner office.

I moved back to my hometown in Oxford County in the Spring of 2015. After several disappointing attempts to secure a normal job, I knew it that the Small Business & Entrepreneurship training I’d dedicated myself to would be burning a hole in my pocket. By mid-April, I prepared myself for the world of diving in head first to what is now Fractaline.ca and its satellite projects on Etsy, at craft markets, and throughout several store-front retailers in downtown Hamilton.

For each time I can think of hearing a bad boyfriend say I wouldn’t be good enough, I have countless examples of hurdles jumped, doors opened, and fears bravely faced.

None of this could have been possible without the empowerment and learning I’d done throughout my time with SACHA. As a way to pay it forward, 5% of the sales off any terrarium sold on Fractaline.ca is now donated to SAHCA – an incredibly empowering community resource that taught me that although I was not alone, I’ve always had the strength build my own dreams.

Sometimes it’s truly better to Do It Yourself

    Like a Hobbit, I am truly at my happiest surrounded by living greenery and the natural world. When I'm not slinging succulents, I like making elaborate vegan meals, biking both fast and slow, and watching something nerdy with my cat, Sweet Pea <3

Beside the mirror on top of that tastefully refurbished vintage chest of drawers; The spot next to your key dish on the hallway console; The part of your desk that collects clutter no matter how often you tidy: Prime Real Estate for Succulents, Terrariums, Kokedamas, and whimsy.

Change comes in time: These plants already know that slow growth is strong and beautiful.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Plants are perishable. FractalineTerrariums is not responsible for damaged, unhealthy, or dead plants after an order has been shipped. If you have purchased items containing plants but have opted to forego the heat pack required to keep them warm/alive during shipment, FractalineTerrariums can not offer a refund.

Customers must notify FractalineTerrariums of any damage, death, or questionable health of any newly-purchased plant within 2 days of Delivery (as noted in the Tracking Info. we both have). A photo of the plant(s) and shipping receipt must be presented.

If it is seen that plant damage or death has been caused by shipping despite the presence of a heat-pack, I will work to either ship new plant(s), or to offer a partial refund/exchange to cover the costs of the plant(s).

Concrete containers and other products that turn up damaged can of course be considered for refund, discount, or exchange. As above, please send photos if you can (this will help me when filing a claim with the shipping company).

All sales of items including plants and/or potting medium/soil are final.
Payment
All payments for Etsy.com purchases must be made as usual via the channels available here on Etsy. Custom orders will require a 50% deposit.

FractalineTerrariums does not, at this point, collect HST. This is subject to change without notice.

Cancellation of your order must be completed via your Etsy account before shipment, ideally within 24 hours of purchase. (Although you may start a conversation with me regarding your intention to cancel, I can not completely honour a cancellation until it has been made through your account.)
Shipping
Products that include plants and/or soil are at this time available across Canada only.

FractalineTerrariums will opt to secure shipping methods that ensure the products will be delivered directly to your door: This may include requiring a signature. You are of course welcome to submit special delivery requests - I will do my best to meet these requests, however, not all options are available through all couriers. I will keep in touch with you regarding the status of your shipping requests.

Shipments for products that include plants and/or soil must be opened within 3 days of delivery. Please refer to the Refund Policy for a further explanation.
Additional policies and FAQs
1. Where Are The Terrariums?
Shipping a gravity-sensitive terrarium is pretty darn difficult for shipping companies that can not guarantee ... anything, really. Bespoke DIY Terrarium Kits are making their way to Etsy (as exclusive Etsy products).

Find a collection of kits available at fractaline.ca !

Succulent Terrariums and Air Plant Terrariums can also be found at my local market appearances! Visit FT over on the Facebook page or my Instagram profile to see where we'll be next <3

2. Is The Moss Living? How do I care for the moss?
Decorative mosses are not considered living plants. They are preserved with a vegetable glycerin that keeps them bouncy and adorable :)

To keep your moss squishy if it gets dry, spritz it with a spray bottle of water, or submerse it entirely in water and squeeze out the excess.

3. I Have A Brilliant Idea!! Do you offer custom work?
Custom orders are certainly welcome! Requests for individual pieces can be made here on Etsy. There is usually a 50% deposit for custom orders.

Requests for "small batch" collections are equally welcome. Please refer to the payment policy for further details. Let's keep in touch and work out an order just for you!

4. HOW CAN I GET THESE IN MY STORE?!
Oh gosh, Thank You! It's always an honour to learn someone wants to retail my wares.

Please email me at info[at]fractaline.ca to get a copy of my Line Sheet and learn more about delivery/shipping options.
