"The terrarium was for my daughter's birthday and was promptly declared the best present ever! She has tended to it every day since. Her dad loves the coffee that came with it, so smiles all round."

"I am based in Australia and ordered a Terrarium for my Nana to help entertain her as we had her on lockdown for a year in her flat in Scotland (due to Covid). She was struggling as she is very social and was finding it very hard and boring. She absolutely loved pottering around and making up her Terrarium and it was so good everything came with it. So grateful for the extra little lady bugs and ornaments UK terrariums Lusan included to add to her look as I emailed them asking them to be sure to include an instruction booklet on what I was actually sending and how to do it. Excellent service and I look forward to getting back and seeing it when our Hard Borders open up!"

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm completely new to terrariums - where do I start?

  1. Source your glassware, plants and substrates. (You can buy all of this in one go with our terrarium kits.) 
  2. Make sure your glassware is clean - wash it out with warm, soapy water.
  3. Pour in your substrates one by one - pebbles, activated carbon, sphagnum moss then soil. 
  4. (optional): Lay out your plants, mosses and decorative elements and decide where you want everything to go. Take a picture for reference. When you're happy with this, move on to the next step. 
  5. Plant everything up! Place large decorative pieces first, followed by the plants (dig a small hole, place the plant root down, and cover and tap down with soil), then mosses, then any other finishing touches such as reindeer moss, small pebbles or rocks, pieces of wood, crystals or figurines.

What size kit do I need?

  • Our extra small kits are perfect for little desktop companions and will fill a glass jar of about 500ml - 1.5 litres capacity. 
  • All of our small kits fit a jar with the volume of between 1.5-3L. This can be a large, half-gallon pickle jar, or a couple of smaller jars (such as for your tomato sauce). 
  • Our medium size fits terrariums with a 3-5 litre capacity. This might look like a fishbowl with 23cm diameter. 
  • The large size will fit a terrarium of about 5-10 litre capacity. This could be one of our smaller bottle gardens (that you can purchase here). 
  • The extra large size will fit a terrarium that has 10-15 litres capacity, such as this kit. 
  • Anything larger than that, please let us know so we can create a custom kit for you.

When will my order be shipped?

We dispatch kits between Monday to Thursday so that the plants do not get stuck in a depot over the weekend.

We have a processing time of 3 - 7 days.

Orders with plants will be dispatched with a next day service, but they will not necessarily be processed for dispatch next day.

If you have a deadline, such as for a birthday or a gift for a special event, please email or contact us beforehand so that we can prioritise your order and ensure it arrives on time.
