A Garden In A Bowl: Upgrade Your Gifting Game With These Handmade Terrariums
What Makes It Awesome
The Green Bowl was started off four years ago by Bandra-based Leah Umrigar. Leah is an ad film maker who started Green Bowl because she realised the lack of more gifting options available to people for housewarming, birthdays or any special occasion.
The Green Bowl offers beautiful terrariums that have been created with products sourced by Leah herself. She mainly works with indoor plants so you can literally just take a bowl and place it anywhere in the house. You’ll see a lot of greens that make up the bowls, however, Leah tells us she also adds coloured plants. Some of the plants that she uses are Syngonium, Peperomia and other plants that don’t require direct sunlight.
Though these terrariums are made to order, a few are always kept ready for immediate ordering. They can be delivered across Mumbai and are mainly cash on delivery.
What we especially love is that these bowls come padded with soil, coloured pebbles, plants and the best bit, tiny personalised figurines. Leah has added figurines of little birds, tiny pandas, bicycle, meditating, Buddha and more. And you can even send a customised message that can be written on a pebble. A thoughtful and long-lasting gift? We think so! This has sorted us out for the future housewarming and birthday gifts.
A tiny garden that you can now gift to your friends, family or just add a bit of green to your home. These terrariums are perfect if you’re looking to create a corner in your home without moving around much of the decor around. Don’t have a balcony? Put it on a side table or hang them.
Apart from the terrariums, you can also find hanging ornamental cages filled with plants, flat dishes with plants and more. A regular sized terrarium starts at INR 1,300 and goes upto INR 5,000 for the largest bowl with extensive plants.
#LBBTip: You can even send her a photo of the corner you want to put up these bowls at, and she will happily suggest the plants best suited for you.
