Hey all this is my newest challenge. I am on attempt #2 having already killed 1 sinningia. So now I am asking does anyoneelse have a terrarium? How are you planting them etc. I am working on a milk botttle shaped glass container and using plastic wrap to seal it. I put in about 2" of river rock then covered it with orchid moss and then the african violet mix. I am getting ready to replant and this time everyone knows to leave the jar where I put it so we dont fry up anymore plants in the afternoon sun
I use to make terr. years and years and years and years and years ago
I do remember using charcoal like they used in fish agua. filters it kept the soil sweet and something else. If I remember right it was rocks, charcoal, soil, and plants
Kya I had terrareiums years ago and Ijust used pebles in the bottom and and then any type of planting soil. I used a wire hanger to put the plants in sprayed a little water in it . I always kept the bottle top open so I wouldn't get the moisture on the glass problem. I used the simple method and didn't have any problems with them. I haven't done one in many years but they were kool
Hi there, I am adding to this post with a little terrarium I've kept for the last few months. To date it is doing pretty ok. Jewel orchids are known for growing quite slowly... so will have to watch and observe for another period of time.
If you are interested, you can take a look at the pictures below.
Am open to any suggestion for improvements
