TERRARIUM BASICS WORKSHOP

A terrarium is a microcosmic ecosystem in itself. We profess the making of beautiful miniature gardens and sceneries in glass enclosures. Terrariums are probably the most unique and practical way of having indoor plants in modern times. Apart from being stunningly beautiful and fresh, they are zero maintenance.terrarium basic workshop

They are also made in almost all sizes, be it as small as a locket hanging around your neck or as big as you can imagine. So no one is disappointed or can complain about not having enough space in their homes to keep at least one of these. The possibilities of how you can decorate you homes with terrariums are almost endless. Being an exclusive art form, using green living components is just the added attraction to them.

Our workshop will mainly provide you with the knowledge to make a basic terrarium. The further improvisations that can be done with this knowledge are infinite in lieu of your creativity.

It basically starts with a glass enclosure of any size and shape. Our plants are all specially handpicked to suit each individual design. Every single terrarium is unique in itself. We can safely and proudly say that you won’t find any duplicates of our terrariums anywhere in India. A lot of study goes on into making every single terrarium, from the mix of soil itself to every stone and plant we put in. The plants also have to be exclusively handpicked to be suitable for the environment that is to be created in the terrarium. We have closed and open varieties of terrariums.
