Looking for someplace in which to buy terrariums in Evanston? Look no further than Cultivate Urban Rainforest! We have a huge selection waiting for you.

Terrariums are Miniature Landscapes

Terrariums are planted in glass enclosures that bring you a feeling of aliveness and wonder that can be found from being in a forest. A terrarium environment is perfect for moisture-loving plants like mosses, ferns and begonias. They are amazing one-of-a kind design plant art.  If you’re not quite a Green Thumb yet, terrariums are a fantastic way for you to add some green to your home, or give as a gift without a lot of worry.

Terrarium Care

Light: Your terrarium will thrive in a spot where it gets bright,indirect, natural light. Place our terrarium in or near a North-facing window, where it will get gentle, bright light all day, or in a room with reflected or filtered light from another direction, but out of direct sunlight.

Water: Keep moist, but not water-logged. Spray soil with distilled water as needed.

Hint: If vacationing, place a small piece of plastic wrap over opening and poke a few small holes – your terrarium will stay moist and happy for several week . We are here if you have questions, need supplies, want to book an event, or take a class.

We offer terrariums in many shapes, styles, and sizes to complement your décor. We have hanging terrariums and table-top terrariums. We also carry all the supplies you’ll need to create your own terrariums. Glass enclosures , stones, soil, tiny plants and charcoal.

Terrarium Workshops

We even offer frequent classes in how to build your own terrarium—for both kids and adults. You can check our calendar of events in Evanston to see when our next terrarium class will take place. We are pleased to offer private and small-group terrarium lessons, group BYOB events, bridal and wedding terrarium-making parties, birthday parties for all ages, corporate community-building activities…book your terrarium-themed event in our rainforest!
