It's a Sign

Even if you can't be there to declare your adoration yourself, this tiny figure will be standing by to remind those you love how much you care. Miniature world virtuosos Michelle Inciarrano & Katy Maslow fill each glass apothecary jar with textural mosses, river stones, and rich soil, creating a beautiful, easy-care ecosystem. Each moss-filled microcosm is populated by a male or female character in your choice of skin tone who speaks to the heart with a brazen "I love you" sign. Assembled by hand in Brooklyn, New York. Jar made in China.

“Once the day is done, there is always beer in the fridge, chips and dip laying about, and stories to share.”

Good things come in small packages for Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow, who founded Brooklyn-based Twig Terrariums together. “We are obsessed with making these miniature gardens, and do not understand any other way since we started,” says Michelle. “We revel in them.” The childhood friends, who lost touch with each other for a decade before reconnecting with craft nights, find the same joy in working together in their studio (complete with a 14-foot paper mache tree!). It’s a sense of lightness they like to share with their staff. They may work hard growing a small business, “but once the day is done,” says Michelle, “there is always beer in the fridge, chips and dip laying about, and stories to share.”

      I got this for my husband for Valentine's Day. I wanted the figure to look like me so I chose the blond. It said blond on the invoice. What I got was a redhead in what looked like a mechanic's outfit. My husband thought it a little weird. I was disappointed.

      Not worth the money

        Comments about UncommonGoods Love Grows Here Terrarium:

        I desperately want to love this. But I don't. When this arrived it was frozen and already dead. Uncommon goods sent us another, however the second one was only partially alive when we received it and we couldn't keep it alive. My partner is a master gardner, and I'm an average gardner, so there shouldn't have been any problem with keeping this alive. Plus, it is much smaller in person than it is in the photo. We could easily make our own terrariums that are better quality than this.

        All this said, the figurine inside is a cute touch and we both really like that.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Love Grows Here Terrarium:

        I think this product is quite lovely. I am still caring for it as my anniversary date nears, so it has not been received by my wife. During the weeklong caring, I've found that it "fluffed up" nicely after being packed with wet paper for shipping. I chose the figurine holding the sign "I Love You." Again, this has yet to be added to the scene, but I'm wondering how the sign will hold up to the water. Will I have to remove it each time to mist the moss? Is the paper durable enough?

        Also, unfortunately, when I pulled the wet paper from inside the terrarium I found a nest of ants had made the journey as well. I was startled and ended up killing the critters... not a good omen for my anniversary present. I haven't seen anymore bugs, since the initial surprise...

          There are a lot of seeds sprouting. Whatever they are the stems and leaves are huge. It's not all that cool to have that happen.

          Great presentation and pretty vase to go in. The I love u figurine is super cute and makes it Unique. My husband is a master gardener so he knew how to care for the terrarium but it did not come with care instructions. That's the only complaint.
