I relish any plants that flower at Christmas time.  I hope you’re having a lovely Christmas so far and I wish you a very merry Christmas for tomorrow.  Today, on Christmas eve, I’m enjoying this Vanda nana plant’s first flowering.  I purchased this sweet little miniature orchid from Spicesotic Plants in 2022.

NB: I meant to take of the sprinkling of moss that’s attached itself to my Vanda nana‘s plastic mount, but I totally forgot and instead took the orchid out of my Tall Orchidarium, took some pictures for you, and then put the plant back inside its enclosure! 

Love Orchids

I adore orchids and houseplants.  I get so much enjoyment from being surrounded by foliage and flowers and I simply love growing orchids and houseplants.  Since Brexit, the range of orchid nurseries open to UK customers has dramatically reduced.  Thankfully, we still have a number of UK nurseries who are growing orchids in Britain.  Love Orchids are a small family-run, British company, based in Southern England. 

If you’re setting up a terrarium, vivarium, or bottle garden, and you’re looking for miniature orchids to add to your indoor garden, you may find that it is not always easy to tell which orchids are truly miniature and which aren’t.

Many orchids that are sold as miniatures are miniature sized when they are young, but as they grow and develop, many of these plants will soon outgrow a traditionally sized terrarium or bottle garden. 

If you’re looking for beautiful miniature orchids to grow in a terrarium, I hope this planting list will help you.  

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!
