terrariums & succulents

This week a limited number of hanging and tabletop terrariums will arrive in the shop. These are beautiful blown glass orbs - the hanging terrariums have an integrated glass loop on top, and both the hanging and the tabletop terrariums can nestle onto a ceramic ring for use on flat surfaces.
They are ideal for small tropical plants, filled with pebbles and mixed mosses, or planted with a selection from the many succulents we have in the shop.

This season has seen a renewed interest in succulents - for good reason! Succulents are
  • easy to care for
  • adaptable to most environments and light conditions
  • drought tolerant 
  • they come in an amazing variety of shapes and colours

With one of the largest assortments of succulents to choose from, i fiori has an ever-changing and expanding selection.

finishing moss
New in store are packages of finishing moss for use with plants, orchids, and ideal for the terrariums.
Choose from 3 different types or combine them as part of your design:
  • sheet moss: sometimes referred to as woodland moss, it is sterilized and dormant (dry), but is easily reconstituted in warm water to create a natural looking, classic soil cover
  • spanish moss: remains dry and used primarily for texture interest or to cover the soil
  • reindeer moss: fluffy clumps used for texture interest and as a soil cover
