We are a small online indoor plant business specialising in terrariums based in Mount Barker, South Australia. 

Helen’s Mini Worlds has the knowledge behind the beauty. The terrariums are not just made to look great but made with a wealth of knowledge to ensure they are healthy, easy to care for and sustainable.

A lot of care and detail goes into each one to create a beautiful and balanced ecosystem.


Our Belief

There is incredible importance to well-being, slowing down and just taking a moment to yourself.

In these moments, there is a certain type of healing power that comes from nature that surrounds us so effortlessly. With more and more time being spent indoors, Helen’s Mini Worlds brings nature inside. Creating indoor environments to be full of life and spread positive energy.

We are strong believers that feeling more connected to nature can help us feel more connected to ourselves.
By taking home one of our terrariums, we hope you can experience this too!

The humans behind the brand

Hi, I’m Helen, the creative behind Helen’s Mini Worlds. 

I have a degree in science and am very research motivated (especially when it comes to designing tiny ecosystems!). I have spent many (many!) hours researching and developing our soil mix and designs. My passion is communicating science to people in a different and interactive way and our terrarium workshops do just that! I am not just about teaching you to make a beautiful terrarium, but will explain the science of HOW they work and WHY they are beneficial for your indoor plants.

I run my business with the help of my beautiful partner Thomas who you will see running our workshops with me and out delivering terrariums.


When we are not working, you will find us out camping in our van (Brian... yes every van needs a name!) or having a laugh together.
