– Bringing the vibrant colors and soothing textures of
Moss Acres announces its latest twist to moss
The Tabletop Zen Garden
Imagine lush ferns, distinctively green moss, and river-smoothed
stones serenely arranged in a one-of-a-kind tabletop garden. For thousands
of years Japanese Gardens have provided tranquility of mind and spirit.
Now Moss Acres' desktop zen gardens capture this serenity
while shrinking it down in scale and creating the ideal
small terrarium, low-maintenance style garden. The deep colors and
forest floor textures of moss and ferns combine to form a tabletop
zen garden that is incredibly lush and soothing to the senses.
Many gardeners have become interested in the natural
beauty of moss for their outdoor landscapes. Now Moss Acres enables
anyone the ability to bring these vibrant and soothing qualities of
The Tabletop Zen Garden can be placed anywhere there
is indirect light, indoors or out. Care for your small terrarium garden
is all but unnecessary, as the miniature eco-system self-circulates
moisture through condensation within the contained environment (terrarium
lid not pictured in photo). An infrequent watering as needed is all
that is required, and since mosses receive all their necessary nutrients
from the air, no fertilization is necessary.
Everything you need to
create your own unique Tabletop Japanese Zen Garden is included:
- 8” x 8” x 12” (tall)
sealed plexi-glass terrarium
- Charcoal for draining and filtering your
- Proper soil medium
- Miniature fern
- Three or more varieties of mosses
- River stone
- Wood and/or other forest floor materials
- Other low growing, shade-loving groundcovers
How often do you or someone you know have the
opportunity to create your own one of a kind conversation piece or
unique gift? Take these elements and build your garden. Feel the
unforgettable texture of the moss, get your hands dirty, and exercise
your creative instincts. When you complete your Tabletop Zen Garden
you will be amazed at the pleasure you have derived not only from
observing the natural beauty of the miniature landscape, but from
the self-satisfaction of having arranged it to match a restful scene
from within your mind.
The Tabletop Zen Garden should be positioned near a
window with northern or eastern exposure, or somewhere
else where it will receive indirect natural light. Southern
or western exposures with direct sunlight are not recommended.
Set-up is very easy: Fill the bottom 2” of the
terrarium with the charcoal, followed by the soil medium. It is highly
recommended that the charcoal and soil be sloped on an angle to one
side or one corner, as this will make the garden area larger and more
visible. Next plant the fern so that the roots are covered below the
soil, add the river rock(s) and then spread your emerald carpet of
mosses. Accent with lichens and other materials as desired.
You will then have created an incredibly relaxing and
one of a kind indoor garden feature for the home or office that also
makes a great gift!
