Terrariums have been enjoying a renaissance for quite a while now, but I’m not sick of them yet. (Perhaps that’s because, as a confirmed plant serial killer, they may be the only shot I have at keeping anything green alive.) Even if you’re feeling terrarium fatigue, this icosahedron Terra terrarium by Fort Standard should revive you.

This nifty terrarium has a few things going for it that many others don’t: cool shape, rustic Hard Maple wood, its own tripod stand and…it spins! And I love the Japanese Fukien Tea Bonsai Tree inside. Its graceful curves are even more pronounced when juxtaposed with the lines and angles of the geometric container. OH, gosh. That just reminded me of the worst math teacher joke of all time. Here, I’ll rephrase it for you. What did the Bonsai inside the icosahedron terrarium say? “Gee, I’m a tree.” (Get it?)

    Pardon my drool, but could you tell me where I can buy this/how much this costs? I can't seem to find it for sale on the 'net, and I simply adore it!
