The Anatomy of an Urban Botanist Terrarium

27 Dec 2021

Our incredible range of open and closed terrariums and ecospheres come in such a huge selection of sizes, shapes, and styles, that there’s one for every interior space! Our open terrariums are available in several varying sizes, as well as in these different shapes:

  • Cube
  • Penta (Dodecahedron)
  • Diamond
  • Jewel
  • Gem

That’s not all; our open terrariums come in a variety of special editions customised for specific holidays and events, like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Diwali! Alongside this, our closed terrariums (ecospheres) come sized from Baby Petite to Mega Grande, and can also be personalised for any special day, like Father’s Day, or a baby shower!

What You’ll Get

Inside every Urban Botanist terrarium, you’ll find everything your new plant artwork needs to thrive and look gorgeous all year round! Each kit comes fully supplied with all the soil, stones, mosses, slow-release hydro grains to provide drainage and store water and, of course, the plants themselves! No matter which terrarium you choose, you’ll receive:

  • Your new glass terrarium.
  • Your soil with activated charcoal for added plant nutrients.
  • Your decorative gravel or stones in your chosen colour.
  • Your new plants! Succulents or cacti specially chosen for you.
  • (Optional) Your fairy lights to really make your new design pop!

Open or Closed?

The first big question you’ll need to ask yourself when buying one of our terrariums is open or closed? Our open terrariums require very little maintenance and at most you’ll need to sprinkle a little water inside every few weeks, but for those who want to have a completely worry-free experience, our closed terrariums require no maintenance at all! The closed terrariums, or ecospheres, offer a completely sealed ecosystem which is self-sustaining, so all you need to do is enjoy your gorgeous new art piece!

To DIY or Not to DIY?

Most of our terrarium products are available as a DIY version, so you can receive the individual components and put it all together how feels best for you! This is perfect for creatives who want to create a bespoke terrarium that reflects their personality. This also means you can fine tune your design to fit with its surroundings, and include your own unique additions at home, too!
