About Our Showroom

Our showroom allows for the walk-in purchase of everything we offer online. In addition to our typical inventory, the showroom also has a wide array of feeders, glass terrariums, completed bioactive terrariums, higher-end plants, wood/rock decor, and a handful of other showroom exclusives. When animals (always bred in-house) are available, we'll have those at the shop too! Our team is here to offer professional husbandry & plant care advice, as well as even more in-depth 1-on-1 consultations. If you'd like to swing by for a visit but our hours don't work for you, please contact us to set up an appointment outside of our standard schedule. We'd be happy to accommodate you! This page will be updated as time goes on, especially after the Grand Opening in October. Check back soon!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What supplies are available in the showroom?
A: The showroom has a bunch of plants, wood decor, and some terrariums on display. There are also some Showroom Exclusive Items that we don't currently ship through the website, as well as feeders for Reptiles & Amphibians. Through the order kiosk, everything we offer on our web store is also available for immediate pickup.

Q: Are the prices the same as the site?
A: Orders placed on the website (for instant pickup) or the in-store Kiosk will be priced exactly the same as the website. Exceptional pieces of hand-selected wood decor & hand-selected plants may be a little different from the website.

Q: Are there be terrariums available for purchase?
A: Yes. We try to keep at least 50+ empty terrariums on hand from brands like Exo Terra, Zoo Med, Zilla, Aqueon, and more. We also may have completed live vivariums available too!

Q: What about normal pet store stuff? (Dog food, cat food, fish food?)
A: Our focus is on bioactive terrariums, exotic terrarium plants, and herp supplies. We don't stock Dog/Cat/Fish food, but we'd be happy to special order anything you'd like!

Q: What about animals? Reptiles? Amphibians?
A: Yes, but we aren't a pet store. The only animals we'll be selling will have been bred in-house by our expert staff. Expect a low quantity of the highest quality Reptiles & Amphibians. Our showroom's screens illustrate which animals are available, and we accept reservations on animals once the eggs are developing in our incubators.

Q: May I walk through the whole shop?
A: Only the showroom area is open to the public, and we'll be sure to have as much "unique" stuff up front for folks to look through. Our production shop, logistics department, and grow rooms are closed to the public. Still, the showroom features one of CT's best selections of truly terrarium appropriate plants and wood decor. Basic products (brand name stuff) can either be ordered from a team member at the front desk, or through an order kiosk. (Or on the website for pickup!)

Q: What about custom vivariums, consultations, or custom supplies?
A: All of the services we offer online will be extended to in-person experiences. We'll also have a few pre-built live vivariums available, built by the same three designers that perform our museum exhibits and other custom installations. Our custom design department had been closed from 2020-2022, and we're excited to be able to get back to business!

Q: Are you hiring?
A: Yes, but the showroom positions will be filled by veteran staff. If you'd like to apply for our Logistics, Greenhouse, or Production Departments feel free to visit our Employment Page!
