Item arrived very quickly. Well packaged, and well thought out. The seller was considerate at every step, and I will certainly use her again -- I think the marimo is amazing, and will probably start purchasing them as gifts for coworkers. The Zen Garden is just as unique and beautiful. My cubicle is starting to look fresh and relaxing. Amazing -- thank you so much!

About

The Magic of My Story

Gardening became one of my hobbies since I was a little girl. As my patio grew full I began to create terrariums inside my home. I fell in love with their magic so I continued to make more until they filled my entire home. It was now time to share some of my creations with the world.

I love creating miniature gardens that are easy to care for someone who has limited space and a busy life. My version of the Zen Gardens, Terrariums and Marimo Homes I designed are Modern, Bold and Fun. I am so thrilled to be the first to introduce Marimo pets to my fellow Etsians! Marimos are super easy to care for, just like other terrariums I create.

I am so thankful of Etsy to help spread my creations to more people when I was the Featured Seller on the Etsy homepage. Read my interview here:

PRODUCTS:

Plants
I take the time to pick out the best plants for you. However, if for any reasons your plant arrives unhappy in any ways I would be glad to send you a replacement.

Glassware
My glassware are handblown, and the naturally occurring bubbles and others are from the blowing process. I only choose the best pieces from my supplier for you to enjoy.

QUICK PLANT BREAKDOWNS

Air Plants AKA "Tillandsias"
Generally they require a few misting once or twice a week, or soaking in filtered water once every two weeks. The pink tips on the air plants are caused by brighter indirect sunlight (when placed by a window).

Succulents
They are the funny little plants with thick, juicy leaves. The conserve a lot of water to withstand the drought. That's why minimal watering would still keep them looking healthy.

Cactus AKA "Cactaceae"
Their leaves have evolved into spines. Similar to succulents -- cactuses store water in their bodies to withstand drought.

________________________

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
Each plant has its own amount of light requirements. If you are hesitant whether which plant will perform best in your space, browse through my "Shop Sections" on the left column for some suggestions. The sections are categorized by the amount of light each plant/decor requires. If you still have questions after browsing through the sections, or if I'm not being clear in any way, convo me! :)

No Light Tolerance
Decors in this section requires no light and maintenance since these decors are dried. They are perfect for spaces that get very minimal or no light. And did I mention that these decors will be perfect for the busy bees!

Low to High Light
Decors in this section can perform in low light to high light levels. Low light is a space that gets minimal lighting such as a room with no windows, or soft lighting. Plants in this section may perform in natural light and fluorescent light perfect for office spaces, cubicles, tables on the corners far away from the windows.

Medium to High Light
Decors in this section can perform in medium light to high light levels. Medium light is a space with window(s) that can provide good light, but are away from the window. I usually don't recommend putting plants on window sill if it faces south/west since the afternoon sun is the hottest thus can burn the plant. Plants look best when they are in bright, but indirect light. If you are planning to place your decor on the window sill, let me know so I can suggest plants that work for your location.

A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE ON PLANT BENEFITS

Why should we have plants in our homes?
Plants not only provide our living and working environment with abundance of warmth and color, but they also bring some health benefits to us.

As we know the air inside our homes have more pollutants in the air than the outside. Plants naturally have a filter system that can help purify the air by converting carbon dioxide to oxygen bringing us fresher air in our homes!

Plants absorb many toxins that's in the air such as mold, bacteria, fungi, pollen, dust, etc. Having plants in our homes not only make us feel happier, but can help fight allergies.

Why place a cactus in your workspace?
Cactuses can help absorb EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) radiation that electronic devices such as computers, televisions, DVD players, and others output. EMF radiation can cause minor headaches and stress causing you to work unease. The spines on the cactus attract charged ions in the air, and change the conversion of ion levels in a room.
