Use the hand-blown glass vessels as a carafe to serve drinks and spirits at parties and family get-togethers. Each carafe comes with a wood sphere stopper to keep the terrarium's humidity in or to keep the bugs out of your favorite beverage.

How to Create a Tabletop Terrarium:
1. Choose the right plants. Look for plants that like low to medium light in the smallest pot available. Here are some favorites: Ajuga, club moss, Fittonia, polka dot plant (Hypoestes), small ferns, dwarf mondo grass, Peperomia, miniature African violets
2. Fill the bottom of our Roost Coppenhagen Carafe and Terrarium with 1-3" layer of activated charcoal for drainage and odor control (find charcoal at local nurseries or pet stores).
2. Add at least 2" of sterile soil-less potting mix on top of your charcoal. Add as much potting mix as you can.
3. Remove your plant(s) from the pot, break up the roots if they're root bound, and remove excess soil.
4. Dig a little hole using our handy Terrarium Tools. Place your plant in the hole and tamp the soil around the roots, eliminating any air pockets.
5. Water your new mini garden world with a plastic spray bottle, taking care not to over water. Check every couple of weeks to see if the soil is dry.
