Did you know our classes are now the most popular "classic terrarium" classes in the entire world?

It is the closed lid that causes a terrarium to recycle its water, oxygen and carbon dioxide in the terrarium effect. No lid? No terrarium.

It's true. Our survey of terrarium shops in all the major cities across the U.S. and around the world reveal that Roosevelt's Terrariums now offers more actual classes per week, with more actual attendance in each class, than any other terrarium shop in the world. Why might that be?

It is because here at Roosevelt's Terrariums we teach you how to plant a TRUE TERRARIUM; a CLOSED, WET, SCIENCE-BASED, LOW-MAINTENANCE terrarium. Not just another wide-open glass planter, with nothing but a succulent or an air plant. Each of our terrariums is a self-perpetuating, tropical ecosystem. In other words, a TRUE TERRARIUM WITH A LID. Because, as we say around here;

If it doesn’t have a lid, who you trying to kid? It’s not a terrarium.
 

There is Bit More to Our Terrariums Than You Might Realize

 Your terrarium will look as good as our own, and we will back it up with our No-Fault Terrarium Warranty and Free Maintenance. We will not let your terrarium fail to thrive.

Your terrarium will look as good as our own, and we will back it up with our No-Fault Terrarium Warranty and Free Maintenance. We will not let your terrarium fail to thrive.

Another reason our classes are so popular is because we begin each class with a brief history, then an explanation of the basic science, a presentation of the proven principles of terrarium design and finally, clear instructions on terrarium care and maintenance. That way, you, and your friends, end up with beautiful terrariums that will thrive for many, many years. And we guarantee it.

Our Great Wall of Glassware (All With Nicely Fitting Lids!)

 Registration is $60 per person. However, each student receives $25 back as credit toward any of the terrarium packages displayed on our "Great Wall of Glassware."

Another Reason for Our Popularity is Our "No Fault Guarantee"

In fact, we back up your terrarium planting with the same no-fault warranty that we offer for our own plantings. You can't fail with our terrariums, because we won't let you fail. All you have to do is bring them in and we will fix them up, just for tips. You can also add new plants to you healthy terrarium whenever you like, for just the cost of each plant.

Sip, Snack & Plant

 Sipping on a free bottle of root beer is an excellent way to settle in for the class.

When you arrive you are welcome to enjoy an ice-cold root beer, cream soda or bottled water from our classroom cooler. It's "on the house."

However, you are also welcome to bring along your favorite wine, cider, or beer, some cheese & crackers, and whatever else you would like to sip & snack on while you plant your terrariums.

P.S. If you call and ask we can normally set your party of up to eight at its own set of tables during the class, though we may have to use any empty stations at your tables if you cannot fill them. Call ahead to let us know what you want to do.

Terms & Conditions Apply

 "Seeing therefore that we are to be a nation of law abiding citizens, let us submit happily to both the spirit and the letter of every law under which we are thus privileged to live."

"Seeing therefore that we are to be a nation of law abiding citizens, let us submit happily to both the spirit and the letter of every law under which we are thus privileged to live."

The following Terms & Conditions apply to all our terrarium classes. Thank you for your cooperation.

•  Each student will have a $25 credit toward any terrarium package they choose. This credit may be applied to any glassware and plants that you choose. Those who choose to plant something more expensive than $25 will simply pay the difference at the end of their class.

*  In order to receive our No-Fault Terrarium Warranty, all class materials must be provided by Roosevelt's Terrariums. In order to avoid contamination from pests and plant diseases, our students may NOT bring in their own terrarium containers, plants or other items for use during our classes.

*  Introducing outside plants and other materials to your terrarium after class may void your terrarium warranty. Please ask us first before adding anything new to your terrarium.

*  Our Poison Dart Frogs may only be added to terrariums of a larger size in circumference.  This is in order to provide the frogs with adequate oxygen and ample room to roam around.

*  Our $25 class credits may NOT be combined to plant one terrarium. Every class member must either plant his or her own terrarium or forfeits his or her $25 credit. No exceptions.

* Classroom space does not normally allow for friends or family members to attend our classes without also registering and planting their own terrarium(s). Parents of young children should normally plan to plant their own terrarium along side their children. We try to accommodate special requests when we can. Please call ahead to ask for permission before you arrive.

*  Students may re-schedule their class reservations with 48 hours notice without penalty simply by calling 503-734-9996. Failure to provide such early notification may result in the forfeiture of class fees. Classes may be rescheduled, but not refunded.

* All materials, (including glassware, plants and stones), at various prices and discounts, are subject to availability. All such materials are offered during each class on a "first come, first serve" basis and only "while supplies last." Whenever a particular item, container or plant is no longer available in a class, students must simply choose from those materials that are still available.

*  Roosevelt's Terrariums may cancel or re-schedule any class at any time without notice as emergency circumstances or failure to meet minimum attendance requirements may require. In such cases, all students will be either rescheduled to another class on a future date or a full refund will be issued.
