About

My hope for the blog is to create a visual archive of information on the many species of plants suited to terrarium culture. This site is a constant work in progress and I’d like to make it as easy to navigate and informative as possible. This site aslo helps me keep track of information and photos of my own collection, which I keep a list of here. 

The thought expressed by Mary Oliver below, is one that has informed the motivation and purpose of this blog,

“…the impulse to keep to yourself what you have learned is not only shameful, it is destructive. Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.”

I hope to have guest authors in the future, to help broaden the type and breadth of content. Chuck Nishihira provided significant content from 2015-2016. All posts written by guest authors will be designated as such.

A majority of the plants described on the blog are from my personal collection and are *not for sale.*  If you are interested in purchasing plants, please visit the shop and sign up for the newsletter.
