Tsumanuma and Yamada wanted to create a fuss-free terrarium that is both modern and simple. Rather than creating tableaus of moss, rocks, dirt and flora, 1012 Terra focuses on showcasing just a single plant. Fans of traditional terrariums can also purchase a hexahedron model that provides space for additional landscaping.

1012 Terra’s fine glass pieces appear to suspend the plants that they contain in mid-air. Succulents and cacti fit inside the terrarium cases with a small basin of water below. The plants’ foliage or greenery rises above the top half of the case, while the exposed roots are visible in the water basin. 1012 Terra’s new terrariums bring a sense of serenity and simplicity to any room, while providing a firsthand view of life blooming before you.

    beautiful, but surely the water develops algae and makes the glass and water green …..how often would it need to be cleaned and water replaced….love this…just unsure how practical it may be. as i use large glass containers to hold various cacti and succulents in my house. but need to cleean them at least 3 times a week.
