It's not every day that you stumble upon a product with your own name. But it happened when Igor and I discovered these glass terrariums from Holland called Urban Jungles. Lucky us, they are pretty and the perfect gift for any Urban Jungle Blogger 😉
Urban Jungles are glass terrariums made from glass & solder. When Victor, the inventor of UJ, finished renovating his home, he decided to get rid of all superfluous accessories and only keep his most precious belongings. Not a big jungle with dozens of plants, but one beautiful cactus in the spotlight. And behind glass! That's when the idea for these glass terrariums was born: five geometric designs, that enhance the organic shape of any small plant, gem, sculpture or toy. The styling possibilities are endless!
My first idea was to place a cactus inside my Chowpak terrarium. But I had a look around in my jungle and all my plants were too wide or too tall. The only one that fit in was this small succulent. It kept me company on my north-facing desk all winter and exploded to reach for extra sunlight. He is tall and handsome now, can you believe only 5 months ago he looked like this?!
Of course I couldn't resist playing around with my Urban Jungles terrarium for a bit:
Urban Jungles come in 5 different models, mine is called Chewpak, Igor chose Johnnson and there are also Charivati, McLansey and BarunBaru. Each piece comes with its own bag of little rocks and is beautifully wrapped. By the way, the terraria don't like water, so if you want to use it for plants, prefer cacti or Tillandsia (airplants) and water sparsely.
To win one Urban Jungles terrarium:
► Leave a comment below with the name of the jungle you would like to win.
► Not mandatory, but it would be nice if you'd follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Bloglovin
► Visit Happy Interior Blog for an extra chance to win: Igor is giving away a second Urban Jungle!
On February 16th I'll announce the winner. This giveaway is open worldwide. (Green) fingers crossed!
This giveaway is now closed. The winners are… here!

I love those terrariums and I think that the McLansey would fit perfectly in my room.
Lots of love, Lisa
I really like the shape of the Johnnson model – it would bring a zen feeling into my home
Oh I love them all! But the McLansey or the Chowpak are definitely my favourites. Love the Waldo (Wally) inside yours…
They are so beautiful! Would love to get one for my Mom whom is really into this kind of stuff. I love the Johnnson model.
Thanks for the chance and keep up the great work!
The moment I read your and Igor's posts, I knew I had to enter this giveaway! These are so stunning and unusual. I love the Johnnson model!
Always wanted one of these. Love the Johnson the best and also the Barunbaru. And I'm going straight to Igor's for my second chance ;) fingers super crossed!!
They are all very cute , If I ad to choose one it would be Johnson and the second would be BarunBaru! <3 In love.
Oh this is great! I've seen a similar product before, and even tried to make one myself with plexiglass. To no avail.
So yes, I'd certainly like to wine one! It's really hard to pick one, but the Chowpak intrigues me most.

And I would love to win the Garivati, but also the Johnnson or Chowpak would be perfect, I'm not that difficult ;)

Wow, how cool and what a happy coincidence. I think the Johnson is my favorite!
I love Johnnson Jungle the most. I would definitely put a succulent in it, or maybe a cactus!
I'd love the BarunBaru. So pretty!
I really like the Johnnson model :)
Sigh. And another big sigh. I loooove these terrariums! The Chowpak and Johnson are my favorites. Actually, I love them all, but that's not really a legitimate answer, right? ;) So, Chowpak. Yes. Definitely. Fingers tightly crossed! (oh and I was already following you everywhere, ha)

I just bought some more airplants – couldn't resist.. they would look beautiful in the CHOWPAK.
Love it! They look great.
I would die for the Chowpak!
I think the Chowpak would be amazing to win!
Chowpak is my favorite! Very cool looking planters :)
High on my wishlist: the Chowpak and the Johnson. I would love to win one of those eyecatchers! <3
I definitly like 'Johnson' the best! I would love to welcome that cute fella into my home and fill it with greens!
I am so pleased to see that you have the Chowpak, my favourite! I think it looks more sculptural than the others, and I would love to see it with one of my plants in it! (Or a custom plant, so to speak, acquired just for the Chowpak)
Mein Favorit ist Johnnson! Ideal, denn so kann ich meine Pflanzen trotz Katzen auf dem Tisch stehen lassen!
My favorit is Johnnson. Would be perfect for me, so I could have my favorite plants in the missle of the table and don't care about my cats. They love plants as much as I do! 😉
they are all so beautiful – my favorite is johnnson!
what a pity that my birthday is just at christmas – i have to find another reason to offer one to me!
I love Johnnson <3
The chowpak is my favourite.
I love the Johnnson one, its rather cute!
awesome! love the chowpak
Hello, I would love the McLansey to bring a little bit of plant life into my life! And failing that, I could always play Where's Wally with my children :)
Love them all! This is such a cool give away! I'd love to win the Chowpak! :)
i would love to win the Johnnson! i really love the shape of that one!
Oh, such beautiful craftsmanship. Right now I am downsizing from a three bedroom house with garden to a one bedroom apartment with balcony and searching for beautiful ways to keep plants inside. The Chowpak looks so lovely in your home and would be a wonderful addition to my writing desk.
Hallo! Would love any of these urban jungles for my classroom. I think they are all lovely, but if had to choose would be the Barunbaru or the Johnnson. Tot ziens!
The garivarti is the cutest. I love how you added something different than just a plant to one.
wow these are amazing! And you made a great choice, i think i would choose Chowpak, too and it would make my office happy :)
Hello. I choose Johnnson terrarium. Hope to win.
Schattig! <3 Dankjewel, dat je dit mogelijk maakt! Ik zou heel graag “Johnnson” bij het raam kunnen plaatsen.
Groetjes uit Duitsland,
I would love to own the Johnnson terrarium! Thank you so much for offering such a lovely and generous giveaway.
Wauwie! De Chowpak staat op mijn verlanglijstje <3
These would be perfect for my fragile little succulent babies! The Johnson is calling to me!
i love your chewpak, so I enter this, who knows? thanks for the opportunity
Almost impossible to select a favourite model, they are so beautiful and would make a wonderful home for my mini succulent and airplant collection! I'd love the Chowpak the most though :) Love from Berlin!
All of these are amazing! But I think my favorite is the Johnson.
Ohh, seriously loving these. The BarunBaru is calling for me!
calling me, that is – woops*
How difficult choice! But I think the McLansey is my favorite even if I like very much the Chowpak too ;)
Love these terrariums by Urban Jungle! My favorite is the Johnnson style.
The Johnson would be lovely to keep a plant safe from our omnivorous cat.
Ooh, wat mooi. Ik vind ze allemaal te gek, maar als ik moet kiezen, ga ik voor de Johnnson. En nu duimen maar ;)
I really would love to win one of those! I ALWAYS WANTED ONE! and was looking for it for a long time.. now I know where to buy, but winning will make me extra happy! So Please!!!!! Give it to me! I love
Chowpak and would make him feel home in my office! (liked your Insta and Twitter)
Hope I will win *hope*hope*hope*
Oh what a beautiful give away. I love those geometric shaped terrariums.
My favourite is BarunBaru :)
I love the look of the McLansey terrarium! I've always dreamed of owning a cactus, but with a cat it would be near to impossible to keep both of them safe. This would finally allow me to add one of those prickly guys I fell in love with to my collection!
Love this and big love for the BarunBuru:) Every green beauty deserves a little castle!
What beautiful terrariums! The Chowpak is my favourite. Thanks for running the give-away :)
i love McLansey
I just came over from Igor's site and thought that Johnnson is the nicest one of them, but now as I see you having a Chowpak, it makes me reconsider…because it really looks lovely! So Chowpak it is. :)
I love the Chowpak, you've styled it perfectly! Thanks for hosting such a great
My grandmother used to have a terrarium – it was certainly exciting to look at but mostly it just looked like something from the zoo.
However, I feel very confident that the chowpak will look very decorative in my windowsill – and definitely make a healthier environment for my plants, which are currently struggling to cope with the cold from my leaking windows.
So stylish, so pretty, so nice. I NEED one in my plant filled life.
In my enthusiasm to win I forgot to mention that the Chowpak design gets my top vote! <3
Oh wow! These are great Judith! I love the shapes and I like the Chewpak the best! It would perfectly fit in my succulent collection ;)
I love every single one of the terrariums but I really like the Chowpak the best. Also my chicks and hens plants look exactly like the one pictured.
I'm no good with any sort of organism requiring my help for survival, thus a terrarium with a cactus would be great to bring some green into my apartment, with optimal chances of survival! They all look lovely, but my personal preference goes out to the BarunBaru model.
I love the BarunBaru jungle. Perfect way to make my cactus look even more special!
I love the Johnson. My air plants would look great in there!
I love this idea of you and Igor about giving away a terrarium. I'd love to win a Johnnson. :-)
I'm absolutely in love with the Johnnson model! Would be an amazing home for one of succulents from my collection. <3
Thanks for great blogs!

I like the Chewpak! Cool giveaway.
I adore the Chowpak model! It is beautiful and very unique.
I LOVE these so much!!! I love all of them but to choose probably BaranBaru.
They are all beautiful ! The Chowpak is my favorite :)
These are just too pretty. I like them all so choosing the one I would like to win is really difficult but I think I'll go with the Johannson.
Juudith, this is so awesome! I love the whole idea of this concept! And as already posted on Igors Blog, this is exactly what I was looking for, when I wrote the “One Plant Three Styles” article! Unfortunately the one I used in the article isn't made for plants, so the water comes out whenever you water your plants, even if you're sparsely ;) So well, I really need to take the chance to take part in the raffle for winning the “BarunBaru” model *fingercrossed
You are really doing a great job with the whole UBJ Theme! This was, by far, the best idea I've ever came across! <3
I'm looking for a nice home for my terrarium for some time now and these are just wonderful! I think I love BarunBaru the most :)
Love your creative ideas! Great giveaway and good luck to all! I love their BarunBaru. Xx.
Oh those are fantastic. Let me win one, pretty please. Love the Chowpak and the Johnsson featured on Igor's blog.
Ps: what a fitting captcha ;)
Love these! I could finally have a plant my cat wouldn't eat. Chowpak is my favorite.
I'd love a BarunBaru – it's really unique and cute!
I really love Chowpak, it looks like a crystal!
Green fingers already crossed! :)
I like the Chowpak best! It would fit perfect to our modular shelf!
I would love the eye cathing Chowpak Urban Jungle to give my interior an out of the ordinary look!
I absolutely love the vibes of the McLansey! I love how it captures space so well. Plus, I already own some cacti that have been wanting homes.
The chowpak is my favorite, just gorgeous
My boyfriend thinks our home is too girly, but the chowpak would make it super sweet AND raw & edgy! The perfect combination!
Wow! I have some copper picture frames in the same stye at home, the Chewpak would match perfectly with them! And it would help to finally succeed in my 3-years-in-a-row new years resolution to add more plants to my interior.
Garivati is so beautiful!
Wow! So pretty! Hard to decide but if I have to choose I'd pick BarunBaru. That would be awesome to fill it with one of my little succulents but I also like your idea of putting something else in, just for fun!
Love terrariums and the Johnson is just perfect!
The Chowpak design is beautiful and definitely my fave!
ooh hey Judith, what awesome Giveaway! <3
i have to try my luck!
my favorite cute little greenhouse is “BarunBaru”
I'll keep my fingers crossed <3
Chowpak will be perfect for mai succulent and my Yoda figurine!! This give away is awesome <3
Gooood luck for me!
The Garivati is gorgeous!! Such a fan of all things succulent and terrarium. Would be a dream to win one of these.
I really love the Chowpak! :)
I love the mclansey!
Oh like you I love the Chowpak ! Very cute designs. And so cool you met your namesakes xx Mel
Oh! What a great give-away! These are on my wishlist for such a long time. I have grown some cacti from seeds that are waiting to be put in the spotlights. My favorite is the Chowpak and the McLansey.
Gave winactie! Ik vind de Chowpak denk ik toch het mooist. Maar de McLansey is ook een pareltje…of eigenlijk allemaal!
Hmm ik ga toch voor de McLansey :) mocht ik winnen dan natuurlijk.
I love the Johnnson model!
I really love all of them, maybe the Chowpak would fit best in my flat?
I would love a BarunBaru model! They're all beautiful thought.
What a cool give-away! I like the McLansey the best, looks like a piece of crystal to me.
The “Chowpak” because of the awsome naming.
I would love to start a little Urban Jungles family!!! Great give away. #johnnson would be a great partner for my #Chowpack
Great giveaway!! My favorite is the Johnnson, it would look great on our table 😃 Fingers crossed!!
I absolutely love the Johnnson, it's so incredible!
I love the McLansey!!
Hi There! I would love to win the 'mclansey'! (or the Johnnson or the Garivati.. I can't choose..!) The objects are so beautiful made, I've seen them in real life during the Artline in Haarlem in the studio of Anouk. I love putting different objects under glass so that it becomes a piece of art. Love to hear, greats Rosalie Noordam
Yes yes yes, making a new metal designer coffee table, the BarunBaru would look awesome on it.
Great site you guys have, added to inspiration.
I would love to win the Johnsson! A week ago I saw them for the first them and I immediately fell in love!
I came across cute little 'Chowpack' some time ago, fell in love, and been saving some money to buy one ever since. unfortunately other extensies made it impossible for me to buy one yet, so this give away is kind of a heaven send for me :-) any other Urban Jungle terrariums will do too!
Wow they are so beautiful! I would love to win the Johnsson.
whow fantastic, the Johnnson would give a perfect green touch to my new interior.
McLansey for sure! It asks for a clear spot on my huge table and also it'll survive my cats hunting on plants :')
Oh myyy! These are stunning!! I think I'd have to choose the Johnnson as I like its little squat shape – it'd look super pretty with a little succulent baby inside!!! :) fingers & toes crossed! R.
Oh I would love to have the Chowpack, I've been searching for so long for this kind of terrarium. Fingers crossed!
I would love to win the Johannson model. I've been looking for the perfect terrarium for months, and this one would go so well with my office decor. The angles are beautiful!
I love the Garivati terrarium! What a fantastic giveaway :)
I love all of them but would especially love to win the McLansey model!
I'd love to win one of those! I am so bad with watering plants, they all die within no time. I think this is the best solution for me, and it would look super stylish in my living room! I think the Mc lansey is my favorite.
Ohh wat een awesome give away… Heel moeilijk kiezen, maar ik zou de BarunBaru willen winnen denk ik!
Op de valreep (hoop ik)!! Dit is wel een gevalletje kill your darlings hoor, maar uhmmm.. ik denk dan toch de BarunBaru. Maar oh my, wat een beauty's allemaal!! <3
i really love the BarunBaru, looks amazing!
I hope it's not too late to enter that wonderful giveaway.
I'm in love with BarunBuru. Fingers crossed!
I also went on the Happy Interior Blog, and follow you on twitter (@15thofmarch).
Happy day, Jessica.
The Barunbaru would look great in my new carriage house apartment! Hooray for plants!
Viva la succulents and their glass castles! Happy Nesting.
