Garden Under Glass

Designed by terrarium artists Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow, this kit includes everything you'll need to create your own thriving, self-contained world from the ground up. From the hardy terrarium plant seeds to the proprietary soil mix, each aspect of this DIY conservatory was coordinated through the conjunction of art, science and design to help the timid terrarium-maker or bad news botanist. The handsome glass and wood vessel includes detailed instructions, packets of all the necessary terrarium layers, and embellishments such as black lichen, reindeer moss, lichen branch, and a couple of cute bunnies for extra luck. You'll be the architect of your own verdant tabletop realm in no time! Handmade in Brooklyn.

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.”

Comments about UncommonGoods The Lucky Gardener DIY Terrarium Kit:

We bought this to be the perfect outdoor addition to our NYC apartment fireplace mantle. People always check it out the first time they come to our apartment! It adds a touch of the outdoors to a stylish living room. It was easy enough to put together. Definitely set aside some time (it can get messy), and my only difficulty was that my hand was too large to fit inside the hole. Luckily I had someone with smaller hands to help me :)

Where are the bunnies?

By 

from Tallahassee, FL

Comments about UncommonGoods The Lucky Gardener DIY Terrarium Kit:

The product itself is fine — or would be, if all of the pieces and parts were shipped with it. It is advertised as coming with "a couple of cute bunnies for extra luck." These small, decorative items were not included in the package — and neither an online chat nor a phone call with Uncommon Goods customer-service representatives has succeeded in getting the missing items sent to me, nearly two weeks later. Since the terrarium kit was a gift for a child, this seemingly small oversight is more significant than it would have been otherwise.

    Comments about UncommonGoods The Lucky Gardener DIY Terrarium Kit:

    Easy, fun, and attractive. The directions said that bunnies are included, but mine came with mushrooms. They're cute too so it doesn't matter, but the directions didn't match what actually came with the product (in case anyone else is searching the box for bunnies). :) I had fun putting this together and now I'm just waiting patiently to see what pops up from the bulb and seeds!

        I purchased this terrarium as a Christmas gift for my sons girlfriend, I did unpack it as soon as it arrived. It is a beautiful presentation even before it's made in to a terrarium. I was so impressed with all of the bubble wrap and packaging paper used in shipping to keep it looking great. (not broken upon arrival)

          Instructions could have been more clear but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out...the biggest beef is the much touted bunnies weren't included, only two cows.

          Comments about UncommonGoods The Lucky Gardener DIY Terrarium Kit:

          I've had this for a little over two weeks, and it doesn't seem like I've bungled it yet - one of three seeds sprouted! However, I am worried because I purchased this because I travel for work a lot - up to ten days straight sometimes - so I wanted some non-cactus plants that could survive a sporadic watering schedule. From what I've seen so far, it seems like this needs watering every 3-4 days. We shall see though.

          It would also be helpful if the instructions gave any sort of indication of how often to expect to water besides "very lightly water" and "you'll want to keep the soil moist".
