Urban Jungle

With our sustainable, natural and green items, we turn every home into an urban green jungle. All our items are the result of a sustainable passion for nature and greenery. We do this by bringing craftsmanship and new techniques together with local markets and international urbanization. In this way we ensure that you always have a unique piece of green in your lovely and cozy home.

No green thumb? No problem! 

Our terrariums totally take care of themselves. In many cases you only have to water them several times a year. This way, can enjoy endless greenery at home or in the office. You get all of the good stuff and none of the bad! With a mini-ecosystem you bring a small, self-sustaining biotope into your home. The water is recycled through evaporation, so watering is not or hardly necessary. Super trendy and convenient, right? We thought so, too.

Our terrariums with plants are truly for everyone and feel at home in any interior. Good to know; all our terrariums are delivered as a DIY terrarium kit, so you’ll have to assemble it yourself after receipt. But again no worries, because we will explain everything you need to know about your ecosystem in five steps. 

What is the best place to put my plant terrarium?

Light is essential to the existence of your terrarium and the health of your plants. Therefore, it is more than important that you place your terrarium in a location in your home or office where it will receive adequate daylight. Be careful though; direct sunlight, bright light spots or placing your terrarium near other heat sources such as a heater is not good for your terrarium.

Good to know: 

  • North-facing windows often provide too little light.
  • Our terrariums are only suitable for indoor placement and use
  • The best temperature for your terrarium lies between 15 and 25°C. (59 - 77°F).

Watering your terrarium

The closed terrarium with plants in a bottle has its own unique microclimate. Nevertheless, it may be necessary to give it extra water, on average once every six months. Use the soil as a guide to determine the moisture level inside the pot. If the soil feels dry, you can give 5 to 10 cl of water, depending on the size of your terrarium. 

Self-sustaining ecosystems and terraria

All of our terraria are self-sustaining. This means that after you purchase or make your ecosystem, you practically don’t have to do anything to your made ecosystem. Are they 100% self-sustaining ecosystems/terrariums? No, they’re not. Like everything else in the house, you'll of course need to give them some attention from time to time, and a splash of water can’t hurt to ensure the survival of your self-sustaining plant terrarium. Should one of the plants in your terrarium not make it to the finish line, you can simply buy new terrarium plants at your local garden center. Not sure which plants to buy for your terrarium? Feel free to contact us.

How to care for a terrarium with plants

Light and condensation in your terrarium

The right light is essential for the health of your terrarium. It is important that the plants do not receive too little light which could cause them to go mouldy, or too much light which could cause the plants to burn. So place your terrarium close to a window, but avoid direct sunlight and for an even distribution of light turn it a quarter every 2 weeks. Sometimes there is too much condensation and the plants are barely visible. In that case you can open your terrarium for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the excess moisture to evaporate. Does the condensation keep coming back? Try moving it to another place.
