About

This site is a thought-child of the blog In Search of Small Things which has been up for about two years now.  The blog features a library of around 250 plants that are in cultivation and suitable for the terrarium, as well as some that were solely observed insitu.  There are articles on cultivation, various frog and fish species, and terrarium construction and design.

I hope that this new interface will make it easier for people to view and purchase plants, in addition to saving me some time posting ads on multiple platforms.  Ideally this will allow more time for photographing and writing, and enjoying my collection.  If you have any suggestions as to how to improve this website, you can send a message here.  I look forward to hearing from you!

This store is run by (me) Emily.  I have been keeping amphibians and tropical plants for over ten years, and have always been fascinated by the small and wondrous, whether it be jumping spiders in my backyard or the ‘jewels of the rainforest’ (to quote Jerry G. Walls).  I was born in upstate NY but now live in the PNW, and have been building my collection here for the past three years.  The expression “moora moora” (slowly slowly, or, the way of the chameleon in Malagasy) has always resonated with me in regards to my approach and philosophy with living organisms, and watching a terrarium grow over time is one of my favorite aspects to this hobby.
