Life Under Glass

Grow a little green oasis in your life, whether it's at your busy workplace or in the quiet of your favorite reading nook. This terrarium kit contains all you need to grow a blend of dwarf sedum—a kind of pint-sized, easy-care greenery that offers intricate paths for your imagination to wander. Your little biodome is made from a repurposed wine bottle, and rests on a base of bamboo chopsticks that double as tools for tending your tiny garden. Made in Idaho.

    Great for the office to warch it grow. Many visits from coworkers to check on progress. After 6 months it all died. Is a replacement seed pouch possible to order?

        Loved the idea, but my sister, who is very experienced with all types of plants, couldn't get it to grow. The plants look very sparse in the bottle. Disappointed!

        Comments about SEDUM TERRARIUM BOTTLE:

        The glass gets watermarks from dried droplets, and forms new droplets on the top from humidity. Both make the glass just look dirty. It's NOT crystal clear, like the picture. Also the sedum has grown between 1 and 4 mm in height, so realize that it will take a LONG time to grow into a display-able piece. I bought it to display in an exam room, but the fact that the glass is too dirty to peer through combined with the fact that the plants aren't worth looking at anyway made me return the item.

            Although the first time the terrarium didn't grow, UncommonGoods quickly sent another and this time it has turned out very well. My brother really enjoys it. It brings a little green into his life in the city.

                Unfortunately, the bottle was broken upon arrival, but when we contacted uncommon goods, they sent us a complete replacement no problems. We are very pleased with the customer service and are anxiously awaiting the seeds to sprout.
