Flower power - Terrarium update





Today I'd like to give you a small update on my plant terrariums (you can read the original post here). The big fern bowl looks just like it before so I think there's no need for new photos. Just to remind you (old photo):


However, a few other terrariums appeared :) I wanted to achieve something like this:

cyclamen under a cloche



And I have this:

mini orchid in full bloom, the day I bought it

shedding blossom


After some time a new bud appeared :)


and my mini orchid is blooming again

There's no denying, an orchid closed in glass looks beautiful :) I watered mine only once - just after putting it inside the container.


I put it still in its pot which I covered with dried moss.



Here's the very first orchid that is going to bloom again after it's lost blossom completely. I never know where to cut the stalk so once the orchid loses its flowers it stays that way until I have to get rid of it (usually because of yellow leaves or other disease). So this small guy is a really nice surprise :)


Here's what it looked like when I bought it


And here is my cyclamen plant in a terrarium. Unfortunately I didn't have a proper camera at the time and now the plant doesn't have flowers and stays in a cool dark place. 




That's all for today so thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a great week! :)

  2. thank you;) actually they are blooming right now (fourth time),I don't water them or open the terrarium and they're doing just fine :)
    I suppose you can use whatever you want as long as it can be closed and the orchids fit in without touching the glass.
