I so enjoy growing miniature, epiphytic orchids. When I am mounting epiphytic orchids, usually I use cork bark as a mount, although sometimes I will use other woods to mount my orchids, it all depends on which orchid I am growing, and what materials I have.
I hope this information will help you, if you’re mounting epiphytic orchids onto cork bark or other wood, or if you’d just like to learn more about these diverse and interesting plants.
This is my new terrarium, The Madagascar BiOrbAir Terrarium. This terrarium is planted up with plants which have been grown in cultivation, but originate from Madagascar, pictured on the 9th April 2017.
BiOrbAir terrarium features
I love my BiOrbAir terrariums! I so enjoy growing miniature orchids, ferns, and other terrarium plants inside these specialised, automated terrariums. I loved the older BiOrbAir terrarium models, but I have been so impressed with the new 2017 BiOrbAir terrarium model, and the fantastic improvements that have been made to this new, updated terrarium, which was designed by Barry Reynolds.
I am so very lucky to have a beautiful, new BiOrbAir terrarium!
I decided to plant up this very special terrarium with orchids that are endemic to Madagascar, to highlight and raise awareness of the fragility of this very special place on Earth, and showcase the beauty of Madagascar’s plants. Many of the orchids that are endemic to Madagascar are not found anywhere else on Earth.
Madagascar is an amazing island that’s situated off the South East coast of Africa. Madagascar is a special place, it’s is home to a large number of interesting and amazing orchids, many of which are only found in this one special area of our planet.
In order to highlight the beauty of Madagascan orchids – and to raise awareness of the fragility of their home environment – I have planted a specialised, automated BiOrbAir terrarium from BiOrb with orchids that are endemic to Madagascar.
The simplicity and beauty of white flowers are enjoyed and appreciated by many of us. I have received many requests to plant up a terrarium with white flowered, miniature, epiphytic orchids, so I have now emptied and re-planted my specialised, automated, BiOrbAir terrarium, which was designed by Barry Reynolds and is available from BiOrb, with a variety of white-flowering orchids, to showcase how beautiful a single colour planting scheme for terrariums, vivariums, orchidariums, or bottle gardens can be.

Apart from your plants, everything else you need to plant up your BiOrbAir terrarium is included when you buy your BiOrbAir – it all arrives together in one wonderful, ginormous box!
I find my BiOrbAir terrariums easy to look after and care for. I love growing miniature orchids, ferns, and other terrarium plants inside the BiOrbAir terrarium. Here is a guide to the regular, general terrarium maintenance, and plant care that I give to my BiOrbAir terrariums.
Life can be busy and stressful, it’s not always easy to make time to stop, relax, and appreciate the beauty of nature. If you’re looking for some time out, a lovely and relaxing activity that you can take part in this month is the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2017 – spending a restful hour watching and counting birds.
Hedges often provide food, shelter, and a nest site for garden birds.
Every year at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, you’ll find a wealth of plant knowledge and expertise inside the Great Pavilion, where specialist nurseries, expert growers, and plants people, come together from all over the world, to showcase some of the special plants they grow and love.
Here’s a look at some of the nurseries and exhibits that were inside The Great Pavilion, at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016…….
If you’re looking for beautiful miniature orchids to grow in a terrarium, I hope this planting list will help you.
