Terrarium trouble? Bring it to our plant care workshop! Join us for this in-depth troubleshooting and first aid class for terrariums.

Bring along your own troubled terrarium for diagnosis and healing from our resident terrarium doctor, Charlene. This unique terrarium workshop is for anyone who wants to learn more about terrariums, what can go wrong, and how to deal with things when they do.

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.

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.

Please note: 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.

Important information: 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.
