Aquatic plants are often a forgotten part of the plant world, which is a shame because many are adapted to shade and are perfectly suited to growing indoors.

Join us to learn about Jarrariums and make one to take home. A Jarrarium is a self contained, low maintenance underwater landscape and aquatic ecosystem that brings the beauty of water plants to your coffee table. These self contained vessels are low maintenance and self sustaining, requiring only indirect light and are constructed to ensure their longevity.

This Master Class will cover:

  • Local indigenous plants suitable to use in a Jarrarium
  • How to construct and Jarrarium
  • Ongoing maintenance requirements
  • Tips and Tricks

The cost incudes the resource needed to make an aquatic landscape of approx. 1.5 litres in volume (around 30cm tall) including a local indigenous aquatic plant that will grow and flourish in this environment.

In the morning of the same day and at the same venue we are running a master class on "Creating a Native Plant Terrarium". If you book both classes you can attend both classes for $80 ($40 per class). You will need to book each class by using the "2 class - Seed & Cutting" ticket option when booking your tickets.

Maximum class size is 15 people.
