We're back!

We're finally back in action! It's been a busy fortnight of ordering supplies for the store and food for the dinosaurs in the terradctl zoo. Some friends of ours were dino-sitting while we were overseas (thanks, Brent and Juno!) and did a great job of spoiling the little guys. Now our little family of brontosaourus' and triceratops' have acquired a taste for the finer things in life ~ Gippsland triple-cream brie and Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz ~ Outrageous! As you might expect, the dinos are well fattened and ready to head out into the real world for an adventure. Check the tubby little fellows out now at the newly re-opened

Reopening soon!

Hello! Some of you may have noticed that we have been off the radar for a little longer than expected. The stores have been closed for a few months now while we've been travelling and kicking off some new projects, but we'll be re-opening really soon. We can't wait to get back to the Terradctl life of growing, designing, building and shipping our little terrariums! 
We'll also be adding some new blog posts over the coming weeks about our new projects, products, adventures, and some of the rad inventions that have taken our fancy over the last few months. To everyone who has emailed us over the past couple of months, sorry if we haven't been able to respond to your queries. We'll be doing our best to catch up with replies now.
In the meantime, here's a shout-out to the folks at Plant/Life Balance who gave away 20,000 indoor plants and brightened the day of many an office worker this morning. Nice one!

See you soon!

terradctl on the pages of Frankie!

Post by Repete

OK, I know I don't exactly fit the target demographic of this delightfully matte-paged bimonthly, but I love Frankie magazine even more than I love Maggie Beer ice cream. And that's a big call. 

I'd like to be able to say I only read it for the articles, but the truth is, I call shotgun on our office subscription to see the new bits and pieces of handmade cool on the first few pages. Oh, and to read the latest from my fave writer-crush, Benjamin Law :)

welcome to the earth terrarium

Allow me to introduce the tiny residents of planet Slinkachu. I tiny heart them all :)

watching grass grow

post by terreliza

this is an update on our farmyard series and as you can see the grass (well, moss) has grown! check out the original photos here. anyone know where i can get a teeny little ride-on lawnmower? or some more cows? camilla just can't keep up with grass that grows this quick. i'm looking forward to seeing the whole moss life cycle take place inside this jar over the next few months ~ stay tuned for nerdy bryophytological updates!

new medusa hanging terrarium range

post by june buggy

we have a new air plant variety! allow me to introduce tillandsia bulbosa and her snakey tendrils. these remind me so much of medusa's hair in the pre-versace logo days back when she was scary hot. our new limited medusa terrarium range is available from today at etsy and madeit, and already selling fast!
