The ZEN Succulent is Open
This modern terrarium and plant craft business based in Durham, that is now open in downtown Raleigh! Created by the mother/daughter team Margaret and Megan George, The ZEN Succulent has a modern take on traditional terrariums. The shop is a celebration of their love for urban planting, and their delight in color. Each terrarium is created by hand featuring natural and preserved plants and sea life. The ZEN Succulent hand mixes their own soil and uses locally sourced plants (some of which are urban grown from clippings at Margaret and Megan’s home). The remaining terrarium supporting elements come directly from harvesters and fabricators in the Philippines, Japan, and throughout North America. They are also open for workshops! 208 S Wilmington St, Raleigh, NC
