Kiwi

The Kiwi terrarium is named for the elusive flightless bird of New Zealand. With its rounded rear and tapered, gently upturned neck, Kiwi is elegant yet playful. The largest of the collection, it boasts the most diverse array of succulents, showcasing their incredibly distinct colors and shapes. Each Kiwi form is hand blown and has a slightly varied shape. Dimensions are approximately 19" long, 11" tall, 12" at widest part, with a 4" diameter opening.

The Kiwi terrarium fits up to ten varieties of succulents. Ingredients include a mixture of horticulturist's charcoal, gravel and organic succulent mix soil. Plants may include but are not limited to a wide array of succulents ranging from Echevaria, various types of Sedum, Cremnosedum, Crassula and Kalanchoe. Also features some standouts (depending on local availability) such as the Echevaria "afterglow", a lovely pinkish purple casted succulent and Pachyphytum oviferum "moonstone" which gives off an ethereal powdery silver glow.
