JAMES TERRARIUMS - THE ENTIRE LINE (FOR NOW)!



   
   
OHM MY!
      
You don't have to own five acres of land or travel to Japan to appreciate the Taoist proportions of nature. A Zen garden has been created on an island sitting atop an ocean of polished stones... A hill of moss highlights a dwarf tree, a diminutive shrub, and a tiger striped stone.

AIR APPARENT
    
Air plants, a.k.a. Tillandsia cling to branches for a weird yet beautiful look into the world of these oddities of nature.  These curious plants don’t grow in soil, but do enjoy an occasional misting and weekly soak.

WOODLAND FOREST 

   
A simple glass cube terrarium serves as a window on nature. Moss is mounded into a woodland landscape complete with a fern and various indigenous species as well as other items one might find on a stroll through the woods. The closer your look, the more you'll find… mosses contain interesting dormant seedlings sprouting, new fern fronds unfurling…

DESERT SANDS
     
This is not just another desktop office garden in a clay pot. Carefully chosen plants, colors and textures are set off against sand and crushed glass carefully composed in an organically shaped hand blown glass vessel.

CARNIVOROUS HERBIVOROUS
     

These exotic beauties are virtually carefree.  Give them damp conditions, good light, and a humid environment (which a lidded terrarium provides) and these carnivores will thrive.  They tolerate temperatures between 40 degrees – 95 degrees!

The pitchers’ of the Pitcher Plant contains a digestive liquid that will trap unsuspecting insects.

The Butterwort will produce beautiful purple flower emerge many months of the year. The Butterwort secretes a sticky substance which captures and digests small insect prey (midges, whiteflies, gnats, etc.)  Don’t worry about unsightly bugs all over the leaves.  I’ve never seen any on my species… the insects are too small to detect.

Squeamish about feeding… Leave the lid ajar to provide the plants with food.  If you’re a carnivore, give them a monthly treat of an insect found outside or around the house.

GONE WILD
    

A hand blown terrarium complements the natural shapes of mosses, clovers, a rare flowering gem, and myriad other plants. A rock, carefully selected for proportion, serves as an excellent background for the foliage.

FERN-TASTIC
     
































        
         
A variety of 6 ferns pop against various shapes and sizes of sea glass. Various ground covers and miniature ivy peek through the glass and will continue push through the crushed glass. The plants are delicately composed in an organically shaped hand blown glass vessel. Let the ferns fill out the terrarium or keep trimming for a more minimalist look!

BRANCHING OUT

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I've seen terrariums become a trend, but this work is completely original. It's its own genre within the terrarium sphere. A really well done coupling of design and fine art, plus nature, and you had me at hello.

  4. Very, very cool! Your landscaping is so much more interesting than the usual terrarium. So many houseplants are poisonous to cats (of which, I have 2), so my apartment is very lacking in green.

  6. Really loving these terrariums! I had a question about your carnivorous plant terrarium and your woodland forest terrarium. It appears that you have moss going all the way down the sides to the base of the terrarium. I really like this effect, but was wondering how the moss tolerates this over time. Is it live moss? Just on the outside with soil on the inside?
    Thanks

  7. Most carnivorous plants are planted in sphagnum moss (as is this one). I line the terrarium with java moss (an aquatic moss); fill in the sphagnum moss; plant; and add more java moss on top. Essentially, a java moss surround.

    You have to keep the bottom of the terrarium 3/4 full of water. The java moss loves it; thrives; grows like crazy; and maintains a beautiful green color!

    Let me know if you have any more questions!

  8. When I was a kid. I always wanted to make my own terrarium. I made one but it is not last long. The plants died in just a week. I think I made it wrong. After seeing this blog I am now interested in making a terrarium and I will make sure that it will last longer.
