Coco peat is a great addition to many different substrates. We combine it with worm castings and orchid bark compost for our hand blended terrarium mix. This mix is also brilliant for houseplants.
It's a sustainable substitute for peat moss with excellent water retention and aeration capabilities.
Increased water capacity: It increases the water holding capacity of substrates, which increases the porosity of it. this means that there less chance of over or underwatering. It is also hydrophilic, meaning it is very east to rewet and absorbs water quickly.
Trichoderma: Coco Peat promotes the growth of good bacteria and fungi due to the natural trichoderma present in it.
Renewability: Coco peat is a by product of coconut harvesting. It's a resource that is readily available and extremely renewable.

How We Package Our DIY Terrarium Kits
This is definitely the most asked question we receive!
We have shipped thousands of DIY Terrarium Kits all over Australia in the last three years and 99.99% of them arrive safe and sound. All of our glass is wrapped in bio degradable bubble wrap and boxed in strong cardboard packaging that protects the glass extremely well.
Landfill-biodegradable bubble wrap for protecting and storing items can be recycled or disposed of in the general rubbish bin. Once disposed to landfill biodegradation is accelerated approximately 90+% faster than conventional bubble wrap, producing an organic matter (a natural fertiliser) and no microplastics. Learn more here.
Our plants are sent as plugs that are watered before packaging and can easily survive one week in the post.
Our terrarium supplies are all wrapped in cellophane that can be recycled at some supermarkets through Redcycle.
In the rare instance that your package does arrive damaged, please get in touch with photos of damage and we will happily replace the broken glass for you. Customer happiness is our number one priority.
