A new, in-depth troubleshooting and first aid course for terrariums! Bring along your own troubled terrarium for diagnosis and healing from our resident terrarium doctor, Charlene.

This new Terrarium Field Clinic workshop is for anyone who wants to learn more about terrariums, what can go wrong, and how to deal with things when they do go wrong. Your terrarium doctor is Charlene, owner of Botanista, South Australia’s only dedicated terrarium store. Charlene has seen every possible thing go wrong and knows what to do to help you either move forward with your terrarium or start again.

In the first part of this workshop you’ll learn about common issues with terrariums, what they look like and how to treat them. We’ll discuss open terrariums, closed terrariums and terrarium maintenance.

The second part of the workshop is interactive – we’ll diagnose issues with your terrarium and you will be able to fix them on the spot with Charlene’s guidance. There will be plenty of time for you to play and pep up your terrariums together.

What’s included:

We will provide all specialist substrates if you need to take everything out and start again or need to top up

(Substrates complimentary for terrariums 25cm diameter and smaller – a small fee will apply for larger terrariums)

Complimentary sample of ‘Support’ slow release fertiliser from We The Wild.

Complimentary copy of Charlene’s book ‘Beginner’s Guide to Terrarium Care’

Complimentary on the spot treatments

Help with pruning and maintenance

Troubleshooting tips and know-how

Please note that plants, springtails and other accessories are not included in your workshop fee, but you will be able to select from our huge range of specialist terrarium plants and products.

What to bring:

Please bring one terrarium for diagnosis and help

This is not a beginner terrarium building workshop, we will not be creating a terrarium from scratch. This workshop is designed for people who already have a terrarium but are struggling with how to keep them looking their best. Please bring along a terrarium you would like help with. 

Once the workshop has concluded, you may stay on to work on other terrariums in your collection in our workshop room, with access to all materials at their regular prices.
