Why Hotels are Switching From Fresh Flowers to Terrariums

13 Jul 2019

It’s safe to say that many hotels seem to have been stuck in stasis for years now when it comes to fresh cut flowers. Sure they’re nice, everyone tends to use them and they can stay beautiful for a week or so. But fresh flowers simply can’t match the numerous benefits offered by terrariums as hotel plants.

Hotels are bringing houseplants back in a much more modern, aesthetically pleasing, and economically friendly way with terrariums. These self-contained little ecosystems not only bring some freshness and greenery inside, they also add to the overall aesthetics of any hotel. So, let’s take a look at why so many hotels are reaping the benefits of switching to terrariums…


They may have originally been used to help plant hunters transport living specimens thousands of miles home, but terrariums have become one of the most popular alternative trends to fresh cut flowers. And hotel terrariums offer a number of benefits:


Unlike fresh flowers, terrariums can last for months and months when they are properly taken care of. They are very low-maintenance, and require little watering. In fact, due to the succulents and cacti that are often planted in them, they will often only need watering a few times a month.

Terrariums as hotel plants can work wonders for purifying the air and increasing its relative humidity. They can effectively filter out and reduce environmental impurities and toxins in the atmosphere; such as benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde. Any guests will be grateful to breath in the cleaner air, and the terrariums can also help to reduce overall carbon dioxide levels.


Hotel guests want to feel calmer and happier when visiting a hotel; and a terrarium can help them achieve just that. Their calming, mood boosting effects can work wonders for improving concentration, while increasing both happiness and productivity. Hotel terrariums can reduce stress as well, as the exposure to oxygen-enriching plants can help to decrease feelings of anger, tension and anxiety.


Our terrariums for hotels are so versatile, they can be used in a wide variety of aesthetically pleasing arrangements. Not only can they make for striking centerpieces, they can also be used as decorations for a bar, or check-in desk; as well as in the rooms themselves, to delight and surprise any guests.

We use a variety of cacti and succulents in our hotel terrariums, along with eye-catching layers; such as sand, gravel and pebbles. All of which can add colour, vibrancy and life to any hotel space.
