Phalaenopsis deliciosa is a miniature, epiphytic orchid species, which originates from many places, including: Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.  This epiphytic orchid species is often found growing upon trees that are growing near water; plants flourish in humid, forested areas.

In its native environment, Phalaenopsis deliciosa enjoys warm to hot temperatures and very high humidity, it’s important to try to replicate these conditions to grow this orchid successfully. 

Chiloschista parishii is a species of miniature, epiphytic, leafless orchid, which originates from Thailand, India, Vietnam, Myanmar, and the Himalayas, where it can be found growing on trees in forests and woodlands.

Chiloschista parishii flourishes when grown under bright, filtered light, in a warm environment, in a very humid environment, where the plant will receive regular misting during the growing season.

Dendrobium moniliforme is a miniature epiphytic and lithophytic orchid species, which originates from a number of regions, including: Assam, China, the Himalayas, Korea, Nepal, Taiwan, and Vietnam.

Dendrobium moniliforme plants produce beautiful, white flowers, which are fragrant.

Phalaenopsis lobbii is a miniature, epiphytic orchid species, which originates from India, Vietnam, the Himalayas, and Myanmar, where this orchid species can be found growing on trees in evergreen forests.

This is another super cute Phalaenopsis species; I adore Phalaenopsis lobbii‘s cheerful flowers.  Once Phalaenopsis lobbii reaches flowering size, this miniature orchid flowers reliably each springtime.  Phalaenopsis lobbii grows readily in a humid environment, in bright, filtered light.

Schoenorchis fragrans is a miniature epiphytic orchid species that can be found growing in India, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, and China, where this orchid grows upon trees, in moist forests.  Schoenorchis fragrans has thick, leathery leaves that have an attractive purple underside, this miniature orchid produces clusters of tightly packed, faintly scented, pink crystalline flowers during the summer time.

I purchased my first Schoenorchis fragrans in October 2016, but the plant arrived with a number of problems – notably an infestation of various pests.  

Polystichum tsussimense is a pretty little fern.  If you have a steamy, frequently used bathroom with room for a new plant, Polystichum tsussimense will grow happily here.  Although, for best results I’ve found Polystichum tsussimense is more successfully grown as a bottle garden, terrarium, or vivarium plant.  This is an incredibly versatile fern – you don’t have to grow it indoors – Polystichum tsussimense also flourishes outside in the garden. 

Phalaenopsis parishii is a miniature, epiphytic orchid species, which originates from the Eastern Himalayas, India, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Thailand.  Phalaenopsis parishii grows at up to 500m above sea level, where this quite charming little orchid can be found growing upon moss laden trees, on branches that cascade over streams and rivers, or upon trees, growing in areas near water.

In its native environment, Phalaenopsis parishii plants would naturally experience a drier season in winter. 

Coelogyne cristata is a cool growing, epiphytic orchid; this species originates from the Himalayas, Assam, Bhutan, Java, Sikkim, and Nepal.

One of the common names of Coelogyne cristata is the Crested Coelogyne.  Coelogyne cristata will quickly grow to be far too big to grow in a terrarium, but this orchid does grow well in the conditions provided by terrarium growing.  Coelogyne cristata would thrive if grown inside a glasshouse or conservatory.
