The story

Inspired by the Victorian fern craze and Wardian cases (the grandfathers of terrariums). I like doing thorough research for works like this, so I've looked up plants that were actually popular to grow in glass cases, brought from faraway corners of the Earth. I've included cinnamon, tea, peppercorn and, of course, a variety of ferns! Okay, I'm going to admit I randomly threw in a protea (because I've been meaning to paint it forever), a strelitzia (because I took pictures in Portugal and it's just gorgeous) and previously painted grapefruit (because it complements the color palette well). But Victorians loved citrus, didn't they?⁠

Hand-painted and drawn in watercolor and ink, complemented by bits of Darya's actual handwriting, block printing, floral motifs.
