Product didn't ship with enough sand to cover the root. Contacted shop and they corrected the issue right away. Very pleased.

About

Tierra Sol Studio creates happy and minimal small batch ceramics, studio grown cacti, and terrariums—for plant killers who are plant lovers.

I am so happy you found us! We were plant killers too!

Plant care is a lost art. And most people are set up for failure… Have you ever noticed how plants are glued down at home improvement stores? Or their dying plant sale sections? Even if the plants aren’t glued down for certain death, they’re normally in the wrong type of soil or are the cheapest kind of succulents that are delicate and should only be living in an Arizona desert.

We never mix succulents and mosses in our terrariums because we believe that if it doesn’t grow together it can’t go together! And we want your plants to live forever.

Tierra Sol Studio creates happy and minimal small batch ceramics, studio grown cacti, and terrarium kits—for plant killers who are plant lovers.

I am Seana and my husband Yair and I started Tierra Sol Studio because we couldn’t keep anything alive. Plants improve focus and are scientifically proven to make us happy, but we couldn’t grow any in our small dark apartment while I was in graduate school. I began to study plants and their needs with the same dedication as my research. We began to find the hardiest plants and conduct experiments to see which plants survived me being away for months during fieldwork. I returned to pottery and created planters that meet the needs of each plant. Eventually people wanted to buy them and we started Tierra Sol Studio!

We use only the highest quality and lowest maintenance plants. We grow most of our plants at our studio. I craft each ceramic piece with my own hands and often paint them with a variety of flat pastel glaze techniques. I fire each planter using an unconventional method to make pots that are absorbent like terra cotta to best fit the needs of each plant.

Which plants are best for you?
- Do you have a room with low sun or high sun?
Our succulents (and cacti) need one teaspoon of water per month and we only use plants that thrive in low sun or in high amounts of sun.
- Do you have a room or office with low sun or no sun at all?
Our moss terrariums require no sunlight and get watered once every six months!

If you have any questions about which plants are right for your space, just send us a message!

Now you too can have an Instagram page dedicated to your plant hoarding! You know you want to…

xo,
Seana

In the rare case there is damage in transit please let me know within 24 hours of delivery and include a photo. We will do our best to send replacement part(s) that are exact, or very similar to, the item(s) you ordered. Please contact me right away if this should happen.
Refunds and Exchanges
Since all of our items are handmade and unique, there may be slight variations in size, color, or shape. I recreate pieces as close to the photo as possible.

If you have any questions, concerns, or your item arrived other than expected, please contact me right away and I will do my best to make you happy. If you are still unsatisfied, you may return the unused, undamaged item within 7 days of receipt, and I will refund the purchase price. I will not be able to refund shipping costs.

Again, in the rare case that a piece is damaged in transit, please take a photo of the damaged item and box and contact me within 24 hours. I am happy to replace any items that have been damaged due to shipping as long as you contact me within 24 hours of receiving the item.

For living items: I only use the highest quality air plants and moss in my work and spend each day caring for them until they arrive to their destination. Moss is one of the most hardy living greenery. It is so difficult to kill that it is often sold dry and dormant. Our moss is freshly collected, using only the best and greenest specimens. Our air plants are hardy as well and need very little care. Since I can no longer care for the living plants once they arrive to their destination, in the rare case that something happens to them after they arrive, refunds cannot be provided. We provide easy care instructions for each of our low maintenance plant and moss varieties. In the rare case that something happens to your plants or moss, we do have replacements available should you need. If something happens to any of your items during shipping, let me know within 24 hours and I will do our best to replace the item with an exact or similar match that meets your expectations.

If any issues do occur, please contact me and I will help you! Bookmark our website www.tierrasolstudio.com for advice on taking care of your terrarium, discounts, giveaways, and sneak peaks of new items! And get social with us on Instagram: www.instagram.com/tierrasolstudio
