Approximately 10.5 inches long x 8.5 inches wide x 10.5 inches high. Wardian case terrarium with stained glass panels. Give your plants a little extra air in this tabletop Wardian case terrarium with opening roof panel. Includes prop for roof, beautiful green glass accents, plastic liner in tray. Perfect for yourself or that special someone. Planting your terrarium: Start with a layer of pebbles and mix in a handful of charcoal chips, spread this mixture evenly on the bottom of your tray. Next add a layer sphagnum moss followed by a layer of soil to nearly fill your tray. Make small holes where you wish to insert your plants. If your plant has a root ball larger than the depth of your tray gently tease out the roots horizontally. Once you insert your plants into the little holes, bury the roots and tamp the soil to help remove air pockets. Water very lightly as your terrarium will be recycling its own water and you don’t want waterlogged soil. Place the glass top on your terrarium, sit back and relax. What you place inside your terrarium is entirely a matter of personal taste. Do you prefer a green oasis? Do you enjoy the mystic of a fairy garden? Or perhaps exotic orchids are your fancy? The choices are endless. Your imagination is the only limit. You will want to place your new terrarium in a room with sunlight, but not directly by the window.

I took a star off for the following reasons: the gray bottom wasn't properly leveled on the inside so the glass upper section wobbles around. This can be fixed by putting something inside to level it off. Also, a small section of the top looked a bit oxidized and used, this isn't a big deal as I presume it'll end up looking that way over time anyway. The decorative spikes at the top should be a thicker material, it's a thin sheet of pressed metal. A thicker and more firmly melded top would make it stronger and better. The picture showing three panels as the width is not accurate (it has since been updated), there are four panels width-wise. The green stained-glass across the roof gives it some extra personality and to signify the nature-based purpose of the product.
I see two ways to use this: stick little pots and place them in the bottom tray, or, make an actual terrarium like in the photo. Either way would add some life to any home, but I leave that to your imagination. Also, I *highly recommend* leaving the top roof open for air flow. Leaving it closed for too long will cause the air inside to be stagnant, and with the high humidity it will develop unwanted mushrooms or mold. Watering once a week, or spraying the inside every day will be sufficient for maintaining most house plants.
To set up your terrarium get some *tiny* terrarium plants either at your local garden or on Amazon. I recommend the Hirt's Garden - 5 Mini Ferns in 2" pots, or their Hirt's Garden - 5 Terrarium & Fairy Garden Plants in 2" pots. To complete your setup, H Potter has a terrarium kit (in small, medium, and large) which has pea gravel, activated charcoal, soil, and sphagnum moss ready for you to use (H Potter Terrarium Planting Kit Medium), or you could buy all those items separately.
I do wish there was more than two inches of space to layer in your soil, but I understand that would throw off the proportions of the entire piece.
It's a beautiful piece for a starter mini garden and to decorate your home with. Recommended.
Because my décor is in lighter shades, I applied chalk paint to the bottom (after a light sanding) and the top finial piece. Not sure that made it look better or but I like it! :0)
Because it's not entirely airtight, you'll need to toss in a shot-glass worth of water every week or so, assuming you have humidity-loving plants inside like I do (oxalis, fluffy ruffles fern, English ivy, sedum). Only other small thing: the horizontal metal work on the top of the case is a bit thin. If it arrives slightly bent, simply bend it into shape to straighten it out. No big deal!
