Hand-made terrarium from Berlin, with Calathea lancifolia. As each capsule gardens is a self-efficient ecosystem to green your place, whether is your home or office.
Plant compositions: Calathea lancifolia, Nephrolepis cordifolia ‘Lemon Buttons’, Hedera helix var., 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 centrepiece of that composition, Calathea lancifolia, is native to Brazil. Commonly named Rattlesnake Plant for its striking patterns. Long and narrow, the leaves have ruffled edges that are unique to this Calathea species. They are bright green with alternating dark-green markings down each leaf. As many other members of the Marantaceae family belongs to the prayer-plants, also fold up at night, showing the purple underside of the leaves.
Calathea is accompanied by Lemon button fern ‘Duffi’, the smallest variety of Boston fern. It has tiny golden-green button-like leaflets on arching stems.
The composition is filled by cushion moss and untypical variety of Hedera helix, with less obvious leaves shape in intensive shades of green.
This terrarium is hand made in Berlin, inside of the hand-made floristic glass. The capsule is closed with a cork lid.
Each capsule has its own name.
Short care tips for terrariums/flaschengarten:
Water 2 to 3 times a year on average, depending on the moisture level inside of the terrarium.
Prune once a year – just a bit. The ivy and fern could need some cut.
Keep out of direct sunlight.
