The Madagascar BiOrbAir Terrarium

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.

The Madagascar Terrarium Planting List

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.  

White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial

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.

BiOrbAir Review – Growing Miniature Orchids in the BiOrbAir

A year has passed since I set up my first BiOrbAir, an automated, specialised terrarium, designed by Barry Reynolds from Reef One.  I have loved and appreciated this special terrarium every day, and will continue to do so.

Now, thanks to a wonderful and very generous, special gift, from my family and friends, who all enjoy seeing my first BiOrbAir terrarium, and have appreciated watching the plants inside develop and grow.
