Handmade terrarium in copper or silver color with starter kit (can be sold without kit as well).
Perfect for planting succulents, cactus or housing a tillandsia (air plant).

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 (it's a miracle I still have both eyes...) 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 - miniature green worlds to daydream with until I get a garden of my own!

I call this style my "Earth" terrarium, as it's based on a cube, a shape which the ancient Greeks identified with the earth element. This terrarium is stabilized on a flattened point, a new way to look at a well-known shape, and the front square is open so you and your plants can get inside. It will arrive as a kit, with almost all the supplies you need... just add plants! Inside the terrarium is a muslin pouch with pebbles, activated charcoal, and a few suggestions for how to get your terrarium started. I find that the cube shape is great for cacti and plants that like dry environments.

This terrarium either comes in silver or with a copper patina, so please let me know your preference when ordering. (see third & fourth photo for color options)

Terrariums are also available without kits. Please contact me for details.
