Adding a little bit of the outdoors to your home is as easy as putting a terrarium on your coffee table. The self-contained ecosystems are small and simple to care for, and you can get cool geeky terrariums from Etsy seller Moss Love Terrariums with no work required except ordering and opening the package. The tiny worlds feature figures like Yoda, Harry Potter, Gandalf, Katniss, and more. These terrariums would make perfect housewarming presents!
What was the inspiration for including geeky elements in terrariums?
When I first started out, I thought about what unique perspective I could bring to the terrarium world (they have been around since the Victorian era!). Aside from my love of plants and natural beauty, I’m a nerdy girl who loves sci fi, 90′s movies and a good TV show. I decided to be true to myself and meld my loves together. It was so much fun to brainstorm which memorable scenes I could re-create. I can’t stop! The excitement and smiles from others has been so motivating, and it’s awesome connecting through shared loves and memories. My pop culture terrariums are the most fun way to do that.
What was the first geeky terrarium you built and what’s your favorite? Which one in your collection is the fan favorite?
Out of my first batch of five terrariums, I would say two were mildly geeky – a unicorn and a zombie. They were definitely generating the most excitement. After I came across a bunch of vintage Star Wars miniatures at a flea market, my geeky terrariums were born! At this point, my favorite is the ‘Moss Files’ terrarium – looking at it brings back nostalgia from the show. The two fan favorites are Gandalf and Darth.
