Let’s get down to the

  • Zen gardens were originally created in Japan to assist Buddhist monks with daily meditation and introspection. Gardenuity’s Zen Desktop Garden is your invitation to engage in the practice of mindfulness and reap the benefits of being still (even if for just a moment).

    Scientific studies have proven the wellness benefits of having greenery in our workspace. With our desire to connect with nature and our need to find mindful moments throughout the day, the Zen Desktop Garden is the perfect desktop accessory. Whether you work in a high-rise building, classroom, or at home, an indoor desktop garden can inspire gratitude, connection, productivity, creativity, and ingenuity.

    • No added stress with this low maintenance indoor plant

    • An inspiring desktop accessory that can improve productivity and creativity  

    • Easy and quick to set up!

  • Your Zen Desktop Garden comes as a kit with step-by-step instructions and everything you need to care for your tropical plant. As you build your desktop garden, enjoy getting a little dirty while planting and creating soothing designs in the sand! Everything in the garden kit is designed with you in mind and customized to the needs of your plant. 

    Your Zen Desktop Garden Kit will include:

    White Nano Ceramic Planter with Drip Tray A home for your mini tropical plant! This planter is approximately 2.5” x 2.5” x 2.5”.

    Aeration Mat – A green aeration mat made from recycled bottles that should be placed at the bottom of the ceramic planter. The mat helps create air circulation to keep oxygen present for the roots, which is crucial for their growth and development.

    Tropical Foundation – The Gardenuity Foundation is custom blended seasonal compost, full of nutrients for your plants to thrive.

    Decorative Items – Moss, White Sand, Garden Tray (approx. 8 in. x 4 in. x 1 in.), and a Mini Rake.

    Mister Spray Bottle – Your tropical plant likes humidity, so we suggest filling your Mister Spray Bottle with some water and lightly misting your plant each morning.

    Orange Scoop – To use when watering your plant!  

  • When your plant arrives: Remove it from its travel attire. Before planting, check the soil + make sure it is well-hydrated. If it feels dry, place your plant (in the plastic planter) in a shallow dish of water for 10-15 mins to let it soak up the water it needs.

    Setting up your garden is simple and generally takes 10-20 minutes from start to finish. Printed instruction + care cards are included in each kit.


    {icon_sunlight}LIGHT{/icon_sunlight} Your garden needs 4-5 hours of indirect, natural light every day.

    {icon_watering}WATER{/icon_watering} Water your plant once per week. Simply take the white ceramic planter off the tray and pour one scoop of water onto your plant. 

    {icon_humidity}HUMIDITY{/icon_humidity} Your plant likes humidity, so we suggest lightly misting your plant daily with water.
