Sporophyte is a terrarium company specializing in making one of a kind living creations. Using mostly repurposed glass vessels and extra tiny plants, I create small ecosystems that you can watch grow and change on your coffee table, windowsill, office desk, or anywhere else you need a little extra green. I am also working on a line of small concrete planters I’m excited to introduce this summer. Sporophyte was started by Karen Evans, an SLC native who relocated to NYC for 12 years, but now has returned to the Great Salt Lake area. Living in tiny Brooklyn spaces, Karen had trouble nurturing her love of plants. Terrariums were the perfect solution to having more green in her small spaces, and the fact that they didn’t require much maintenance or watering fit with her busy schedule.
