Wardian Case

A Wardian Case is an air tight enclosed glass case. It was invented in 1833 by Dr. Nathanial Wardian, a plant collector, who was the first to succeed in transporting live plants over great distances (in his case between Australia and England).

The Wardian case revolutionized plant collecting and became a popular feature in Victorian living rooms. In the 19th century, these ornate terrariums were used for ferns and rare plants.
