    These are the species I have in the case

    Porroglossum dalstroemii, Trisetella triaristella, a Lepanthes keiki (its possibly gargoyla), Diplocaulobium chrycotropsis, Dracula hirsuta, Paphiopedilum barbigerum, Macroclinium manibinum, Amesiella monticola, Restrepia sp. Trichoceros onaensis x Telipogon thomasii, Trichosalpinx chamaelepanthes, Ceratocentron fesseli, and Thrixspermum merguense, Schoenorchis seidenfadenii, Paphiopedilum tranlienianum (seedling), a Comparettia sp (possibly macroplectron), Bulbophyllum pardalotum, Dendrobium cuthbertsonii (seedling), Trias picta, Dryadella aurea, Trichoceros antanifera, Epidendrum escobarianum (seedling), Restrepiella monetalis, Mexipedium xerophyticum, Paphiopedilum sangii, Dendrobium Aussie Hilo (3 seedlings), Scaphosepalum rapax, Paphiopedilum godefroyae, Paphiopedilum thaianum, Paphiopedilum argus, Zootrophion hirtzii, Phymatidium falcifolium, Paphiopedilum tonsum, Dracula bella 'Mount Ranier' AM/AOS, Haraella (Gastrochilus) retrocalla, Aerangis fastuosa, Lepanthes manibina, Barbosella cogniauxiana, Dracula hirziiI 'Blackie', Dracula vampira 'RT', Specklinia lanceola, Pleurothallis truncata, Paphiopedilum sp - not sure what it is until I bloom it, Trichosalpinx orbicularis, Anoectochilus formsanus, Anoectochilus roxburghii, Sarcochilus olivaceous, Maxillaria sophronitis, a Dracula hirtzii 'xanthina' seedling, Lepanthes telipoginiflora, Lepanthes sp (? wrong ID on flask, so waiting to ID it when it grows larger and blooms), Masdevallia ingridiana, Lepanthes felix and a Masdevallia sp. I have lost the tag for. I think I can still fit more in there

    Non-orchids are Primulina tamiana, Tillandsia (Racinaea) dyeriana, Dionea muscipula 'Bristletooth' ,Dionea muscipula 'Freak/Cross Tooth' - Venus fly traps (not doing so well, may remove them), as well as Drosera burmanii and Drosera spatulatata (Sundews) catch any gnats from the moss. I have one Nepenthes sp. I cant recall what it is.. Will ask the friend who gave it to me.

    My plant wish list - I need seed of Petrocosmea sp (looking for seeds). I think they will do well as the Primulina love it. Orchids,well I am looking at miniatures mostly as then I can get more in there. I am also wondering how a Cephalotus follicularis would do in there. Temps range from 18c night to 22c day at the moment. No idea how summer will take it, but our days rarely are over 32c where I live and it is cooler inside

    I have always liked the look of planted terrariums....that one is a level above most though.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Thanks.. I also have a converted refrigerator that I keep at 11c night and 23c day for my cold growers and acting as a wardian case of sorts. I will take new pics as these are really old and the cases are full now, and make its own post.


    My other case is an converted display cabinet for intermediate growers and runs about 19c night and 26c day with no heating or cooling.. I hope in summer it doesnt get too much warmer.. I was cooling it with a water chiller, fan radiator set up, but the chiller died. I plan to replace it with a fridge or make a fridge myself eventually. Money money money LOL.. Never enough. I will take new pics as these are really old and the cases are full now, and make its own post

    Really gorgeous builds. It is nice to see how the plants have grown from the earlier photos.

    I wasn't able to see the videos. Maybe the problem is in my browser.

    It seems Photobucket.com is not working well for me with videos.. I will try to find some other way to upload them.

    Please try the new link above and see if that works
