The Hall House Terrarium
The Hall House Terrarium is named for Dr. George Rogers Hall, a horticultural pioneer. Dr. Hall first visited Japan in 1859 to join the lucrative trade that had been already established between Japan and the United States. Hall filled Wardian cases with Japanese plants, and they set sail from the newly opened Yokohama whaling port. These terrariums protected the flora from the salt air allowing them to survive the long ocean voyage. Dr. Hall's trip was the first time shipments of Japanese plants came directly to America. Notable specimens included: Maple, Crab Apple, Magnolia, Wisteria, and Hinoki Cypress, slow growing forms which are frequently trained as bonsai. Did you make it through all that? The Hall House terrarium features a gable roof and repeating geometric line design; the perfect space for your own bonsai.
