Hand-made terrarium from Berlin, with Alocasia x amazonica ´Polly‘ and Monstera Adansonii to get you ready for each #monsteramonday.
As each capsule gardens is a self-efficient ecosystem to green your place, whether is your home or office.
Plant compositions: Alocasia x amazonica ´Polly‘ and Monstera Adansonii, moss, gravel, soil.
The capsule belongs to the collection Gardens. In that collection inside of the terrarium, we will find the miniature garden made of dwarf species of plants with very decorative and tiny foliage.
The tallest plant of that composition, Monstera Adansonii, is native to Central- and South America. This tropical climber definitively became the Queen of the Internet in the last years. This variegation is a small round, fenestrated leaves, in intensive green colour. Monstera will grow slowly up, so from time to time will need a cut. The cutting man can plant next to the mother plant to get more jungle and crowded composition or propagate as a separate plant.
The middle part will be taken over by Alocasia. The species chosen for that terrarium is a ‘Polly’, which is a smaller variation of the elephant ear. The Polly is known as the African Mask Plant, thanks to the beautiful shape and looks of its dark green leaves. Shaped like scalloped arrows with bold silvery-green veins, the leaves are an eye-catching sight to see.
This terrarium is hand made in Berlin, inside of the blown in the old fashioned way floristic glass. The capsule is closed with a cork lid, adjusted to each glass separately.
Each capsule has its own name, meet Gloria.
Short care tips for terrariums/flaschengarten:
Water 2 to 3 times a year on average, depending on the moisture level inside of the terrarium.

If a monster reaches to up of the terrarium, make a cut.
