This is the sweet spot in terrarium sizing. Big enough for three or four small plants or one medium sized one and some ground cover. The base is about 8” square and it’s 11 ½” high including its silicone rubber feet and the handles on the lift out lid.
Our terrariums come unplanted, but there is advice HERE about plants we have had success with and instruction on how to plant them up.
Like all our terrariums it is made with four materials – copper, glass, tin and silicone. The copper and glass are 100% recyclable and the copper is made up from about 30% recycled content. The solder is lead free and mostly tin with a tiny bit of copper. The panels are copper bars called cames, which wrap around the edges of the glass, with all the joints held together with solder. Everything is then sealed up with silicone, which is non toxic and completely waterproof when dry.
These aren’t fish tanks, so they aren’t designed to be totally leak proof, but we have filled one up to the top with water and it didn’t leak at all.
