Create Your Own Tropical Fig Terrarium

Come join Wild Leaf for an evening of planting a Tropical Fig Terrarium. In this workshop, you’ll learn everything you need to know about terrariums, from the history of how they came about to the science of how these tiny ecosystems thrive.

Everyone will have the choice of Ficus Ginseng, which is a type of tropical fig, and a selection of fittonia, bun moss, and decorative sand and stones to choose from. The design of your terrarium is up to you, but you'll have the friendly terrarium experts on hand to help you with your creation!

At the end of the evening, you’ll take home your freshly planted garden-under-glass and watch it grow.

What happens in a Terrarium workshop?

You’ll learn about the history and science behind these self-sustaining ecosystems before watching a quick demonstration where we describe the tools and plants on the table before getting stuck in to make your terrarium.

Which plants will I be using?

We use a variety of small tropical plants such as fittonia, ferns, pileas and mosses. You’ll be able to use a variety of plants, and every terrarium created always looks unique and beautiful.

Terrariums are the perfect environment for tropical figs. The slow-growing Ficus Ginseng feels perfectly at home in humid terrariums. In this workshop, you'll have the choice of planting one of these tropical figs or another larger statement plant.
