Millennials drive terrarium growth

Published: 22 February 2019 - Kiran Grewal

Millennials interest in the tranquil nature of indoor plants is having a very positive effect within this sector. Research studies indicate houseplants boost brain power, lifts moods, reduces stress levels, improves confidence and gives a sense of ownership and responsibility.

Plantpak terrariums have been designed with compact living in mind, the company says, and the small Glass Globe has a diameter of just 10cm and may be hung or displayed on any flat surface. Complemented by the 15cm Globe, both are mouth-blown for growing succulents and air plants and include a natural looking hanging cord. Planting and air flow within the terrariums are provided by one convenient oval opening.

The Teardrop and Pyramid terrariums are sophisticated and stylish, with a metal frame and glass walls. Their contemporary geometric design is perfect for cacti, succulents and air plants. Measuring 20.5cm and 25cm in height, they provide an ideal space for creating your own botanical masterpiece. They feature one open side for airflow and planting and can be hung or displayed on any flat surface.

The terrariums may be merchandised in the houseplant area or in the gift section on the bright colourful display module which includes helpful graphics and growing suggestions. The 4-tier unit is space efficient and will make the most of this important and developing market sector.
