To all dealers of the E.A. european aquaristics GmbH!
I am pleased to inform you that we are now adding another innovative brand to our wholesale range:
BOTANICA Sanctuary / The Desktop Terrarium
Botanica is an Australian design team specialising in object creation for the style conscious and miniature garden lover! Growing from a love for nature and the magical world of terrariums, the team began identifying mosses and learning about their growth and sustainability in microclimates to then designing desktop products to house their delicate findings. Satisfying both a passion for nature and contemporary design, Botanica was born. Since the successful launch of Sanctuary, its first mini mossarium, Botanica has expanded to include other products that all continue to bring the rarer outdoors in, with a strong focus on design. Proudly Designed in South Australia. Sanctuary is 100% recyclable.
What is Sanctuary M?
Whilst maintaining the beauty and functionality of the original Sanctuary S form, we have evolved the design, pushed production boundaries, introduced new materials and the result is a stunning modular system which embodies three different micro climates: Rainforest, Temperate and Arid. Select from bases in oak, walnut, marble, concrete and cork and create an environment to suit both you and your plants.
We’ve solved the common issues with small terrariums and developed what we believe are beautifully resolved forms to suit any interior. If you’re super busy or maybe your house or apartment doesn’t have the space for plants – don’t worry. This one still fits on your desk and the best part is it’s so easy to care for.
Sanctuary Rainforest designed with the closed top acts a small greenhouse to keep moss and moisture loving plants for extended periods of time. The teardrop form of the top directs condensation back onto the foliage, emulating nature’s water cycle.
Condensation is normal phenomenon of the Sanctuary Rainforest. Spritz twice or weekly as required. You can gently press the moss to feel how much water it is holding too. If you think the moss is too wet or rotting, open the vents and give some indirect sunlight. Water less.
Rainforest is our original, closed terrarium design, allowing you to keep moss and moisture loving plants for extended periods of time, enjoying greenery all year round.
With a hand blown glass top and our patented teardrop lid profile, Rainforest is available in a variety of natural materials that are both timeless and on point. The teardrop form of the glass top directs condensation back onto the foliage. The moss insert presents the moss and has the original Sanctuary S reservoir to drain excess water. Sanctuary M Rainforest emulates nature’s water cycle system so all you need to do is watch and enjoy life doing its thing.
Creating your arrangement in the insert keeps your base and glass clean. It’s easy to drain and make changes without the need for terrarium tools and very easy to clean, just remove the glass top to polish.
Sanctuary Temperate is designed with the open top suitable for plants that require a moist environment yet still need airflow and room to grow, like ferns, foliage plants and flowering plants.
Choose a position for your Sanctuary according to the care instructions of the plant. As a general guide, check your plants for watering once a week or water when soil is dry to touch. Regular misting can help maintain a humid environment for plants that require it.
Temperate is our first open terrarium design for plants that enjoy a moist environment yet require airflow and room to grow. Open terrariums are for plants that require bright but indirect light and more room for soil. Temperate is also composed of a hand blown glass top and is available with a variety of base materials. The soil is subtly hidden in the design so the foliage can feature in all its glory. The plant insert provides more room for soil and better options for draining excess water to prevent potential rotting of your plants roots. Just pierce the insert for marble and concrete bases. Creating your arrangement in the insert keeps your base and glass clean. It’s easy to drain and make changes without the need for terrarium tools and very easy to clean, just remove the glass top to polish. If you love to experiment with plants other than moss then you will love this refined, open terrarium design. Temperate hand blown glass top, Plant or moss silicon insert.
