Obsidian Special

Even during cold, dark days, our Obsidian Special terrarium will add a touch of bright energy to any living space. It can also be a source of relaxation—either for yourself or a loved one—just when sitting down with a nice cuppa to enjoy a vibrant spot of greenery.

This cheerful planting of pink Fittonia, Ceropegia woodii ‘String of Hearts’ which produces unusual pink/purple flowers, fern-like Selaginella, and moss is accented by a piece of sustainably sourced obsidian rough from California. The iron oxide inclusions within this unpolished, natural stone give it that deep pinkish-orange hue.

We only have very few specimens of this obsidian, so this would be a truly one of a kind gift indeed!

As well as being cheerful and beautiful, this terrarium is a complete ecosystem with tiny springtails that do the cleaning up. They’ll eat up any mould, bacteria and old plant bits that die off. They also help aerate and fertilise the soil, meaning less maintenance in keeping your terrarium healthy!

This nearly self-sufficient indoor garden is housed in a 19cm round glass globe, for all-around viewing all year long. It will do best in a bright spot, away from direct sunlight or any source of heat. If comes with its own cork cover, which decreases evaporation and keeps watering down to a minimum.

A care sheet and a pipette for watering are provided with your purchase, and we’re just an email away if you have any questions.
