The Demijohn

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars
1 Review

The Demijohn is the original London Terrariums terrarium; the first terrariums we made were in this classic vessel, and we still love making each one completely unique. Large enough to create a rolling landscape and use larger plants than our smaller Tinyjohns, the Demijohn provides the perfect gateway into our larger Terrarium pieces.

This well-known brewing vessel will look at home in all interiors, providing a coffee table statement piece or perfect at the end of a bookshelf.


Each terrarium we build is completely unique, the Demijohn will be planted with a selection of Fittonia, Ivy, Small Ferns and then finished with Bun moss and decorative stones.

If you have any specific planting requirements we will be more than happy to help!


Make sure to keep your terrarium out of any direct sun or direct heat and require little to no watering.
You can read much more about caring for our Terrariums in our Terrarium care section.

Each Terrarium also comes with a physical care guide for you to take home.

About Terrariums

Almost un-killable, terrariums require virtually zero maintenance.

In their closed eco-system, the plants become self-sustaining as the glass stops any of the humidity created from escaping keeping the plants nourished and happy.

They are perfect for any home and are best out of direct sunlight.

    What's not to love about LT?

    I have been a long standing customer for nearly 5 years. I fell in love with terrariums after my sister attended one of Emma's workshops at the old New Cross shop the day my son was born and made us our first ever terrarium in a demijohn jar. It is still just as lovely.

    I lost my beloved dog Rocky during Covid, Emma knew him as we'd often visit the shop on our walks. I reached out to Emma to create me a couple of memorial terrariums. They are stunning and really bring the two things I love most together.

    I own about 10 of LTs creations and use any excuse to buy them for friends and family. They really do create happiness in bottle...
