What a fun way to spend the afternoon! At this time they are doing take home DIY kits. The kit comes with access to an online video and one large jar for a terrarium. Since there were two of us we bought one more jar which was $30. Super fun and the videos were very informative and helpful!

This was a lot of fun. It took a bit to figure out how to stream whatever video system they use to my TV (fortunately my phone had the ability as it wasn't an option using their video) and a few volume issues but I'm sure kinks will be worked out as time goes on. Upgrade to the bigger terrarium if you can afford it! Unless you have really small hands lol. We had to find some long tweezers.

They have adapted to the COVID situation and enable my group to have a very fun and productive terrarium building process at home with the use of video's to teach the process and offer support.

Enjoyed the class. Very fun experience building your own terrarium! Be prepared to pay extra as the default jar you have is too tiny. Most people spent an extra $69-129 in addition to the Groupon purchase to upgrade to a larger container. I spent additional $89 + $9tips

About A Chat with Roosevelts Terrariums

What makes your business stand out from the competition?

We specialize in planting, and teaching others how to plant, science-based, totally glass enclosed, low-maintenance, tropical terrariums. Our terrariums normally live beautifully for years, and so we gladly refresh or replant our terrarium as often as you bring them in, just for tips.

What are some of your favorite products that you sell?

All we offer is terrariums and terrarium classes. We plant terrariums of all kinds. Our favorites are the fancy, one of a kind terrariums in antique or art glass containers. We also offer beautiful wood and plate glass Wardian Case terrariums, which make great habitat for poison dart frogs.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?

I have been at this since 1973 and it just keeps getting better every year. I love terrariums, and i love the people who love terrariums.

What do you love most about your job?

I love to create new, extraordinary terrariums. I love to teach people of all ages the amazing history, science, design and maintenance of planting a true terrarium. But I also enjoy just putzing around my shop, rearranging the displays, listening to Irish Celtic love songs and making new friends. It’s a great life.
