If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that live moss makes or breaks a closed terrarium.
But when it spreads its wings, goes out on its own, and becomes the exclusive star of the show? Well, that’s where it shines even brighter.
If you’re ready to build your very own mossarium, this is the article for you. I’m going to show you the top moss terrarium kits for sale right now, so you can find your perfect match and create your perfect piece.
There’s no time to moss about; let’s do this thing!

Our 5 Top Moss Terrarium Kits
1 | Best Moss Terrarium Kit for Beginners
This kit by E K Terrariums is a lovely, straightforward product sold at a reasonable price.
Honestly, what more could we ask for?
In fact, in my closed terrarium kit post, it gets my vote for the best mossarium/mini kit!
The kit has a few key features that make it ideal for beginners.
- The jar has a relatively wide opening (the narrower, the trickier to assemble).
- It includes a wooden pick to make maneuvering the moss into the desired shape easier.
- The reviews frequently mention easy-to-follow instructions.
Sounds good to me!
2 | Best Moss Terrarium Kit With Accessories
These kits by My DIY Terrarium come with all the bells and whistles, making them a perfect choice for anyone who loves to accessorize.
All of the kits come with an abundance of luscious terrarium moss, but you can also choose from three styles:
- Style 1 – comes with a driftwood piece and two mini ladybirds.
- Style 2 – comes with an (extremely cute) baby Buddha statue.
- Style 3 – comes with a crystal, decorative sand, and even a couple of Fittonia cuttings (which would make this one a terrarium kit, not a mossarium kit, but who’s keeping score?).
Life’s short, so why not go the extra mile?
I’m also pretty sure this is the largest kit on the list, though I’m not 100% because I’m from the UK, and some measurements are in ounces and some in inches, which is a giant nope for me.
3 | Best Moss Terrarium Kit With Multiple Mosses
This cute kit by Green Mountain Moss isn’t your average mossarium kit.
The finished result packs the punch of a closed terrarium – with just moss. All thanks to the headlining moss, Climacium dendroides (which looks like a tiny little conifer tree).
In the kit, you get two ethically harvested mosses from Vermont, so you can build a miniature scene with contrast and texture.
It comes in two options; the glass container with the bamboo lid you’ve just seen and a smaller glass jar with a metal screw-on lid (which reminds me of a salt and pepper jar).
4 | Best Bottle Moss Terrarium Kit
This bottle terrarium kit by BTV Terrariums is great for anyone who’s up for a fun challenge.
Why’s that? Well, bottles aren’t the easiest to plant, but fear not, the kit includes a pair of long aquascaping tweezers to make it a whole lot easier.
You’ll be able to keep and use these for projects to come!
You could stick with the live moss that the kit comes with, or why not add something dainty like a Pilea glauca cutting to the mix?
5 | Best Marimo Moss Ball Terrarium Kit
This kit by TOSS Rocks is the wild card of the group.
If you’re unfamiliar, Marimo moss isn’t actually a moss; it’s an algae. And a Marimo moss terrarium isn’t actually a terrarium; it’s more of a water garden.
That said, they look lovely, and I’m not one to draw hard and fast rules when it comes to DIY projects!
(Just note, Marimo moss sales have been suspended in recent years due to the presence of ecosystem-destroying mussels. So please check on their status before purchasing!).
The kit comes with the moss ball, a mini jar with a lid, a little gnarled hardscape branch, and your choice of gemstone rocks for a base.
You can choose from amethyst, rose quartz, citrine, and my personal favorite – fluorite. Or, if gemstones aren’t your thing, you can opt for no base or sand.
That’s All, Folks
