What I reviewed:


Marimo Moss Ball Terrarium:
What a wonderful terrarium! It's a piece where you can relax and focus on the beauty of the objects. The piece contains vibrant periwinkle sand, a sea fan, several black and white abalone seashells, and marimo moss balls. In  addition it comes with a care and info sheet. Have any question? Krissy can help you with any questions and advice!

If you want you can even order ramshorn snails or shrimp to add to your terrarium. I added snails to my piece and it just adds so much life to it. I find myself sitting and watching the little snail buddies adventure around the hand-blown glass. It is relaxing and stress relieving These creatures are very hardy and life happily in the glass. Krissy gives you the care sheet and everything!

This terrarium would be great for a gift to yourself or for someone else. It is small enough to fit in any home, office, or any other place! One person in my family that was extremely interested in this was my cat! haha You can actually see him in one of the photos. :)
