Welcome to the tenth part of my White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial. In this update it is a real pleasure to share with you the flowers of Amesiella minor before they fade, the sparkling blooms of Hymenorchis javanica as they twinkle, and the magnificent flowering of Amesiella philippinensis, as these glamorous flowers finally finish developing and open at last!
However despite all this sparkle, it’s not quite as glitzy or glamorous inside this terrarium as you might think – at least one type of spider mite is currently affecting the plants inside this White Orchid Trial BiOrbAir Terrarium.
Since I published my December 2017 Orchidarium Update, a number of readers have had questions about how I gather my data, with many asking why do I collect data, and what equipment do I use? So, here’s an article that I have written especially for you, which I hope will answer all of your questions.
Data is really exciting!
It’s easy in life to make assumptions, but assumptions are rarely accurate.
Welcome to the ninth part of my White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial. In this update I look forward to sharing the growth and development of these delightful, white flowered, epiphytic, miniature orchid species with you. I am thrilled to show you Aerangis hyaloides, Amesiella minor, Brachypeza semiteretifolia, and Hymenorchis javanica flowering inside this White Orchid BiOrbAir Trial Terrarium.
Happy new year! I have had a rearrangement of this special Madagascar BiOrbAir Terrarium, which I can now unveil for you in this trial update! So, welcome to the seventh part of my Madagascar BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial – growing epiphytic orchids, which are endemic to Madagascar, inside the BiOrbAir terrarium.
My reason for planting this very special terrarium with orchids that are endemic to Madagascar, was to highlight and raise awareness of the fragility of Madagascar.
Earlier this year, I decided to create an Orchidarium with an automated misting unit, LED lights, and fans, to house some of my miniature orchids and provide them with automatic care. Here is an update as to how the automated features that I installed have performed and how the plants have grown and developed. If you’re interested, you can read my step by step guide as to how my Orchidarium was created here.
Welcome to the eighth part of my White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial.
I decided to plant up this White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium in April 2017, after receiving many requests from readers asking about white flowered, miniature, epiphytic orchids to grow in terrariums. I didn’t have a spare terrarium available to plant at the time, so I made the decision to empty, and then re-plant my long-term review BiOrbAir terrarium with a variety of different species of white-flowering orchids, to showcase how beautiful a single colour planting scheme for terrariums, vivariums, orchidariums, or bottle gardens, can be.
Welcome to the seventeenth part of my BiOrbAir Review – Growing Miniature Orchids in the BiOrbAir. The BiOrbAir is a specialised, automated terrarium, designed by Barry Reynolds from BiOrb. I first planted this Miniature Orchid Trial BiOrbAir Terrarium in August 2015, so at the time of writing – in December 2017, this BiOrbAir terrarium is over two years old.

I used to have a large glasshouse. I felt so fortunate to be able to enjoy the use of my glasshouse, every day I appreciated the exciting range of crops I could grow inside, and the extended growing season and bountiful harvest that my glasshouse helped to provide me with. I was so grateful, excited, and so inspired by the vast array of glorious fruit and vegetables that I grew inside the glasshouse.
