Oh man...this is one of my absolute favorites. I am just enamored with lichens these days! They are beautifully detailed when viewed up close and incredibly diverse...there are over 20,000 known species!

These hanging terrariums are an amazing way to display and enjoy these exceptional creatures. With each order, you will receive 1 hanging "teardrop" container (measuring approx. 6" tall x 4" wide), a small bag of sand, a small handful of stones, a few moss and lichen coated twigs and an assortment of lichens featuring specimens of the much sought after Cladonia "pixie cup" along with other fruticose lichens. We will also include a few premium accents to add a little spark and pizazz! (these may include things like crystals, shells, rough or polished gemstones, fossils etc.)

The best part about these terrariums is their ease of care. The lichens will be sent in a dry, dormant state and will remain that way almost indefinitely. There is no need to water them, and no specific lighting conditions required while they are dormant. Should you chose to water them, make sure they are in a low to medium light area when you do, then let them dry out completely again. When they are watered they turn "spongy" again, and begin photosynthesizing light. Please note, if you water them on a regular basis, they will likely need to be replaced after a while (6-12 months) as recreating the precise micro-climate that they need is very difficult outside of nature.

UPDATE: This listing has changed somewhat after a wonderfully informative meeting with a Lichenologist here in our shop. Big thank you to Katie for all of her priceless knowledge!
