These are the geekiest terrariums we’ve ever seen

The moss is strong with this one. At first, you might think these terrariums are your plain, old coffee table décor, but take a closer look and you’ll see lightsaber duels and wizard battles taking place!

Etsy seller Jacie Anderson-Coovert of Moss Love Terrariums created these geeky terrariums that feature characters like Gandalf, Harry Potter, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Indiana Jones, and Katniss Everdeen. I moss say, one look at her crop of terrariums and they’ll instantly take root in your heart and grow on you.

UPDATE: Check out this teaser from our upcoming interview with Jacie Anderson-Coovert!

What was the inspiration for including geeky elements in terrariums?

When I first started out, I thought about what unique perspective I could bring to the terrarium world (they have been around since the Victorian era!). Aside from my love of plants and natural beauty, I’m a nerdy girl who loves sci fi, 90′s movies and a good TV show. I decided to be true to myself and meld my loves together. It was so much fun to brainstorm which memorable scenes I could re-create. I can’t stop! The excitement and smiles from others has been so motivating, and it’s awesome connecting through shared loves and memories. My pop culture terrariums are the most fun way to do that.

What was the first geeky terrarium you built and what’s your favorite? Which one in your collection is the fan favorite?

Out of my first batch of five terrariums, I would say two were mildly geeky – a unicorn and a zombie. They were definitely generating the most excitement. After I came across a bunch of vintage Star Wars miniatures at a flea market, my geeky terrariums were born! At this point, my favorite is the ‘Moss Files’ terrarium – looking at it brings back nostalgia from the show. The two fan favorites are Gandalf and Darth.
