They are quite popular. Not without a reason, they are real eye-catchers in every room. And not unimportant, they even suit plant lovers without a green thumb. We're talking about terrariums, of course.
In part l and ll of our blog series, we told you more about the closed terrariumand the half-open terrarium. Now it’s time to tell you more about the open terrarium. Terrariums are very easy to make yourself, or to offer as a ‘ready to give’ product including plants and stones. The terrarium is very attractive for as well you and your customer, because making it is very easy. Thanks to our POS-materials, the terrarium products are ideal for a(n) (online) workshop. Think about the oppertunities to sell the products in advance.
We have several POS-materials available, including a video of the closed terrarium, in-store banners, various mood photos for online use and much more.
The open terrarium comes in two variants. The hydroponic and the bottled variant. The hydroponic pot makes the plant to do all the work. The pot consists of two parts: the outside and the 'inside container' in which you place the plant. An that is the only thing you have to do. The plant takes root in the container.
Because of the transparency, the roots create a beautiful effect. Last, but not least: the plant itself decides when it will absorb the water. Too much or too little is no option anymore. The hydroponic pot is available in three sizes.
Open terrarium bottle
The open terrarium bottle looks a lot like the closed and half open version. The difference is, as the name says, this one is permanently open due to the opening at the front of the bottle. This variant is not self-sufficient and needs occasionally water, because the fact that the bottle is not closed. Easy on the water, this depends of course on the used plant. Plants that do well in an open terrarium are plants that allow the soil to dry out, such as cacti, succulents and certain small trees. As long as they don't like too humid conditions.
Making an open terrarium itself difficult? Not with this DIY step-by-step plan for you or your client:
1. Apply the drainage layer.
2. Add the active carbon.
3. Add the Plant terrarium soil.
4. Make holes in the soil and put the plants in it.
5. Fill the sides and top with nice stones.
6. Water the plants
Unlike the (half) closed version, you can attach the cork directly to the bottle. The bottle does not need time to rest, because it permanently 'breathes' through the front opening.
The open terrarium bottle is available in four different sizes and two colours, ranging from three to fifteen litres.
Vary in your assortment with the variant with green accents.
All necessities for making a terrarium are separately available. In addition, offer the complete set, for the ‘lazy’ customer. This set concerns the closed version of the terrarium. The DIY-box comes in a gift box (shipping proof, so also perfect to offer in your webshop!) with a handy step-by-step plan and is available in a five and fifteen litre format. The only thing that’s not included are the plants.
