Getting there
801 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA

Get Lost in a Microcosm of Your Own Making Escape the heat while immersing yourself in the lushness of the Auction House Market indoor garden. In this class, we encourage you to explore your creativity while connecting with nature. You'll have your choice of a gold or black modern geometric terrarium, and a succulent and crystal spread that will serve as your palette for botanical creation.

Choose your own geometric terrarium, structural succulents, lush ferns and sparkling crystals from our custom spread!
All planting elements and materials are provided for you, including succulents, crystals, moss, rocks, sand, dirt and a glass terrarium.

We will discuss the importance of each layer of rock, sand and dirt in creating a healthy environment for your new plant friend to thrive, and the importance of mindfully connecting with the living things around you, whether on a macro or micro scale.
You’ll leave with a newly planted succulent terrarium, and the knowledge how to properly nurture it in the serenity of your own space. After class, we welcome you to shop our exclusive curation of houseplants, indoor trees and planters, as well as our handcrafted botanical artwork. Delivery & installation is available for all purchases.
