Where and how are Growing Concepts products made?
Our products are composed with great care and love in the Netherlands. We work together with artisan and local makers and are closely involved in the production process.

What materials does Growing Concepts use?
We work with natural materials that we select with the greatest care for durability and longevity. Our plants come directly from the grower, the glassware is recycled and the woodwork for the accessories is handmade by a Haarlem company.

What does the seal of approval mean?
We work with the best growers in the Netherlands and Denmark with MPS certification. This is a quality mark in the field of sustainability. With this certificate, these growers meet requirements in areas such as traceability, the environment, crop protection products and recall procedures.

Why choose Growing Concepts?
Growing Concepts makes unique products that give your interior a stylish look. For this we use natural and high-quality materials with a long lifespan.

How exactly does a mini ecosystem work?
A closed terrarium itself creates a microclimate so that the plants keep themselves alive. The plants transpire water in the form of vapor. This partially condenses, causing droplets to appear on the inside of the glass. These droplets moisten the soil and provide an environment in which the plants and moss thrive.

What does the DIY ecosystem consist of?
Our ecosystems are delivered as a complete Do It Yourself package. It contains everything you need and step-by-step instructions to get started. The contents of the package consists of stones, soil, moss and the plant(s).

Shouldn't there be a rubber ring at the closure of the preserving jar?
Our many years of experience with ecosystems teaches us that some plants do not thrive in hermetic sealing. That is why we opt for a normal closure, where some air is added, in order to create the optimal climate for the plants. Just look at our Eggs and Corks.  

I want to gift your ecosystem. How long can I leave the plants in the closed box?
Nice that you are going to surprise someone with a Growing Concepts! Are you going to give the product later after receipt? Then we recommend that you take the plant(s) out of the box and the packaging, give them some water and store them in a bright place in the house until you hand over the gift. You can also choose to assemble the DIY package yourself and give it to the recipient as a gift already fully installed.
