I absolutely love my marimos (Merv & Murray). They would make a great addition to any desk or cubicle. Directions were easy & package was delivered promptly & intact.

When the terrarium first arrived, some of the lichens were already dead. It may have been from the intense heat that week. However, when I contacted the shop owner, she was very understanding and shipped more bright and lively lichens to replace the other ones right away. Very friendly and great customer service!

About

Nature is awesome, bring it indoors!

I am a girl obsessed with plants, as a teenager, my room looked like a jungle and I spent my days growing massive gardens from every seed I could get my hands on. Finding a wonderful mentor in my old Australian neighbor, she taught me how to grow vegetable gardens that would feed the whole block. For college, I attended the University of California, Riverside, with their beautiful botanical gardens and received my bachelors of science in Environmental Science (the study of air, soil, plants and water and how they all interact).

I moved to the Great Northwest (Spokane, Washington) 9 years ago to be closer to nature. I found myself a home filled with windows and surrounded by beautiful large trees. It is lovingly referred to as "The Treehouse". It is just what I need to feel like I am outside 24/7, far away from flourescent lights and cubicles. We back up to the forest which allows for lots of hiking and sledding fun and the river is at the bottom of our street.

The winters are long here, I love the cold but waiting for things to green up outside can feel like an eternity. So I decided to rekindle my love for terrariums, letting me garden year round and have nature inside and outside. I have the curse of perfectionism, which prevents a lot of the things I dream about from becoming a reality. But when I create terrariums, that all falls away and I create with abandon. The world can be such a complicated, overwhelming place and I love creating this perfect serene little world encased in glass.

As our world becomes more and more technical, I think it is so important to reconnect with nature as often as possible.

    My shop is run by Me, Myself and I. I know, crazy. Someday I might branch out and hire a little extra help, but for now I love being responsible for everything, the little perfectionist in me gets to make sure that every detail is done right.

    I do get a little help from Bebe, my bulldog. She is my yellow jacket hunter, keeping me out of harms way when I have all the windows and doors open during the summer. She also makes a great supervisor with her watchful eye.

Frequently asked questions

My purchase is a gift, can you include a card?

Definitely, I would be happy to include a card for you with a handwritten message at no extra charge. Just leave me a note at checkout requesting a card and what you would like written.

I'm in a rush, can you deliver my order by a certain date?

Please contact me to see if it is possible. I will do my best to make your order a priority and get it rushed out. I can also postpone shipment to try to deliver it on an exact date if you need.

How long can my marimo balls stay packaged without water?

Marimos can stay packaged without water for up to 3 weeks as long as they are kept in a cool location.

How do I care for my marimos?

Marimos are simple to care for. They can live in any light ranging from artificial light to bright indirect light. Do not expose them to direct sun. Water should be changed once a week in summer and once every two weeks in winter. Tap water is fine, I do recommend using some type of bottled, rain or filtered water for the long run to keep your Marimo as healthy as possible. It also helps keep the vase clean if you have hard tap water. No fertilization needed.

Can I choose more than one color of pebbles to be mixed together for my Marimo aquarium order?

Of course, just leave me a message at checkout with the colors you would like.

Can my lichen terrarium be shipped already assembled instead of as a kit?

Unfortunately not, lichens lie on a bed of pebbles, not soil and would be crushed during the shipping process. It is super easy to assemble though and includes detailed instructions along with a color photo of it already assembled.
