Missing a green thumb? No worries, you can still have beautiful plants around! Say hello to the small – but charming world of – succulents and terrariums.
The plants come in a variety of unique shapes and colours and so easy to take care of! Just a little water once a week and plenty of sunlight is all these little beauties need. Here is where to pick up some of these miniature beauties:
Grow Little Garden
Grow Little Garden pots their succulents in a variety of glass containers but our favourites are the handmade asymmetrical glass and steel terrariums. Want to see the terrariums in person? Grow Little Garden will be making their debut at Brightspot, taking place Sept. 25-28 at Senayan City.
Much of the vibrant colour at Älska is thanks to Vaxa Green. The succulent specialists have set up shop at this new hotspot and plant lovers have their pick of the small and easy-to-care-for garden. Another plus of the Älska-Vaxa Green partnership? You can see how the plants look with the shop’s array of beautiful knickknacks and other curios, if you’re looking to update your space.
BUCAPÉ specialises in special orders with prices ranging from Rp. 15,000-Rp. 600,000, depending on plants, size, and difficulty of arraignments. They are quite new so the best way to check out their work is by peeping their plant-tastic Instagram. In addition to making terrariums, BUCAPÉ recently teamed up with fellow little gardeners, Vaxa Green for a DIY-terrarium workshop at Älska.
Terrariums are inherently interesting to look at but Lumut Store takes it to another level with their miniatures. Add even more life to your terrariums with a little family, a tiny friendly businessman, or a Lilliputian couple in love. You can order the miniatures separately or have Lumut arrange them in their glass-jar terrariums. Mason jars never looked so cute!
Want to do it on your own? Grand Lucky superstore (located in SCBD and Jalan Radio Dalam) has a great selection of reasonably priced potted succulents and cacti so you can design your own terrarium. Also, if you are heading down south, the plant and flower vendors in Cilandak also have an impressive selection. For upkeep, you can pick up all of your soils, fertilizers, and anything else you might need to keep your plants alive at ACE Hardware.
