In February 2017, which (as I write to you in September 2019) was over two and a half years ago, 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. This wasn’t about creating a beautiful enclosure; I built this Orchidarium to house as many orchids from my collection as possible inside this enclosure and to provide these plants with automated care.
During periods when I find myself at home, working longer hours than I would like, I am ever more grateful for my plants, especially my houseplants, terrarium plants, and orchids. At these times, when I am unable to escape to a meadow or a forest, my orchid flowers remind me of the beauty of our natural world, providing me with a cheerful pick me up, just when I need it most!
In March 2017, I created an Orchidarium, complete with an automated misting unit, LED lights, and fans, to house some of my miniature orchids and provide them with automatic care. In this update you can see how these automated features have performed over the past year, and you can also discover how the plants inside this Orchidarium have grown and developed.
Earlier this year I decided to create an Orchidarium to house some of my miniature orchids and ferns.
If you’re looking for beautiful miniature orchids to grow in a terrarium, I hope this planting list will help you. I have planted many of the miniature orchids that feature on this list inside my specialised, automated terrariums, including my Miniature Orchid Trial Terrarium, my White Orchid Trial Terrarium, my Madagascar Terrarium, my Orchidarium, my Rainforest Terrarium, my Tall Orchidarium, and my other terrariums and vivariums.
I love creating terrariums and bottle gardens! Here’s a list of plants that are great choices to grow inside terrariums, vivariums, orchidariums, and bottle gardens, I hope this information will help you, if you decide to set up your own indoor garden!
