Apothecary Aerium

$ 25.50

These small-scale glass aeriums are simple, sleek and elegant. Called aeriums rather than terrariums because they house Tillandsia "air plants," these artistic creations liven up any tabletop, shelf or windowsill. Classic apothecary jars make the perfect homes for these botanical curiosities; to create an Apothecary Aerium is to design a tiny universe entirely unique

Air plants need no soil to survive, and they absorb moisture through their foliage, which makes care simple; simply remove the air plant from its container, soak in room temperature water, and allow to drip dry.


Small: 125 ml / 2" x 4.24"
Medium: 250 ml / 2.5" x 5.25"
Large: 500 ml / 3.25"W x 6.5"H

The piece comes as a kit with detailed care and assembly instructions, and includes a Tillandsia air plant, a glass apothecary vessel with lid in your choice of size, and well as a mix of natural materials such as sand, pebbles, lichens and mosses.

The accompanying photographs depict typical aerium compositions. Feel free to make special requests.

Cute and collectible

I was not expecting it to be so cute. I will be getting more as gifts

Perfect size for a desk

I bought the large size but it is petite enough to fit on my small desk at home. It provides a bit of ‘natural distraction’ and grounding to the seemingly endless pandemic days.

Elegance In Glass

I received the Classic Aerium and couldn’t wait to put it together. They are gorgeous and you get everything you need. I did not insert the air plants into the glass containers but have then resting on the openings; it looks amazing. I appreciated the fact that they were well packaged and arrived safely. Pistils kept me informed about the status of my order. I will definitely order from them again.
