White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial (part ten)

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. 

White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial (part nine)

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.

White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial (part eight)

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.

BiOrbAir Review – Growing Miniature Orchids in the BiOrbAir (part seventeen)

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.

White Orchid BiOrbAir Terrarium Trial (part seven)
