Good for Almost-Green Thumbs

2/14/2019 by Raymond

I always love having living things in my home, for good fortune and positive energy. Even though these require little care, they might not do well in shaded apartments, so finding the right spot with a mix of sun and shade can make for tricky lifespans, overall.More > < Less


Not actually ready made, is a kit, bad description

The product description states "Each design comes ready-made and includes charming figurines." This is actually a kit that you put together yourself. I'm sure it'll be nice once assembled but the description led me to believe that it is ready made.More > < Less

I gave this to my daughter for Hannukah. She was ecstatic about it but it didn’t look great for long.

About Twig Terrariums

Small Worlds

What’s so special about a glass vessel, a pile of rocks, some plant life, and a little figurine or two? We’re not exactly sure where the magic comes from, but the combination is totally endearing. Maybe it’s the tiny people. They make it easy to imagine that the idyllic world created inside each moss terrarium is real.

The creators of these precious worlds are two longtime friends, Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow. They turned their love of terrarium-making into a business after realizing they each had about 50 terrariums in their houses and perhaps ought to find new homes for their work. The miniature people are their signature.

Each kit from Twig Terrariums contains everything you need to make your own little green world, complete with inhabitants. (Or if you’re not the DIY type, you can choose a ready-made style.) We tried it, and it’s a fun, therapeutic activity. The instructions are easy to follow, and maintenance is a breeze, too, since the terrariums don’t require a lot of attention. They don’t require a lot of light either which makes them the perfect cheery addition to any room in your home or office, even the windowless ones.
