Green Banana was officially founded in late 2012 by Ivan Lim who started his gardening interest as a personal hobby for years.
By understanding each type of plants ( especially cacti & succulents) , it inspired the creator to incorporate the little unique species into a various of glass vessels. Each vessel used by Green Banana is carefully crafted and designed to showcase different species of cacti, succulents, moss and even Tillandsia also known as air plants. Terrariums are perfect to keep at home or at the office as decorative items as long as they are close to the light source. Plants can also purify the ambient air, and increase the absorption effectiveness of harmful substances in the air.
Green Banana is a humble expression of art and modern design, borne from a passion for nature's beautiful and intricate creations. The creator hopes that people from all walks of life will appreciate this sanctuary of tiny plants we embrace and believe it wholeheartedly.
