Terrart NYC


Company Description 

Terrart started as an idea to provide friends and family a unique present back in the mid-1980s in Caracas, Venezuela. Slowly as it gained popularity and attraction, it grew into a small family business. 

We started the business because:  we realized the growing trend of having houseplants to connect with mother nature along with other benefits houseplants carry. Noticing that people may not always have the time to take care plants, terrariums became an easy alternative that is low maintenance, sustainable and affordable. It adds to the complexity of interior design while bringing in a minimalist component. This has become our business motto to offer an unique and smart alternative for all New Yorkers who loves plants and nature. 

Terrariums are nothing less than a miniature ecosystem of plants placed in a sealable container and are perfect for indoor spaces. They’re commonly used as a decoration or substitute garden in areas with little or limited space like an office or a bedroom. Air, moisture and light source is working synergistically to make these plants thrive. They’re self-sustaining which means they required little maintenance if sealed.  

You should reach out to us if… 

You want to be connected with nature on a daily basis but don’t  have the luxury of time and effort to raise plants with constant watering and care. That is where TerrartNyc comes in.  We offer a variety of terrariums with a huge number and selections of beautiful plants.
