The Vertica is a closed tropical terrarium that combines the best elements of a desktop ecosystem into one. While a blanket of cushion moss rolls up the rear of the glassware, spiderwood weaves downwards and various plants peek out from the growth, as they slowly take over. This is an enclosed ecosystem, handmade by the folks at ome. This terrarium is closed, so little maintenance should be required.
This terrarium is bioactive, meaning a colony of microfauna have been added to support the wellness of the environment over time. For this design, I have used springtails - tiny, rarely visible white bugs.

A message from Joe, Founder of Ome
When I create a terrarium; it is a way of celebrating and encapsulating the beautiful variety this earth has to offer. In the times we live in it is ever more important that we understand, appreciate, and cherish the natural world, and it’s my goal to make terrariums more accessible.
There is a good reason plants are so beneficial for our wellbeing – they embody true nature, one that all too readily we disconnect ourselves from. Terrariums capture entire climates and allow one to enjoy the magnificence of an ecosystem in its entirety.
If you need assistance with anything on this website or with your own terrarium - I’m always here to help.
