    That's spectacular - what an oddball. I've been wanting to get into mini orchids for a while now, mostly because I don't have the space to add new sets of big plants to my collection, but I haven't seen a whole lot of them. I'm definitely interested in those nanoviv setups too - please share anything else interesting you come across.

    PS - Hahaha, I just realized... this is a genus of orchids that we talked about in biology back in high school after we watched, "The Secret Life of Plants." My teacher got too excited and made some hilarious obscene gestures to illustrate how some species imitate mating wasps/bees to attract pollinators. Nobody had a problem with it - it's still a story me and my friends tell and laugh about all the time - but I sure am glad that we didn't get a surprise visit from an administrator during that class.

    Hobby Lobby? Is that a chain of craft stores? Never heard of it. I was thinking that I could make a stack out of terra cotta pots and use aquarium cement to seal the cracks. I'm also fortunate enough to have a friend with a kiln.

    Yep, they are pretty common around here... large craft store too
    The pipes (they do have a bottom) are 2-3$ ea. IIRC

    When you order from that source, you send the funds to a rep in New York. They then bring your order into North America (USA and Canada) while on the Orchid show circuit and ship to you then.

    Mine was delivered in beautiful condition.

    Good to know - they appeared to have some pretty reasonable prices so far as plants in general go (which probably means a steal for rare, hard-to-propagate plants like orchids) but the website is acting funny so I didn't do a lot of browsing. I want to get back into building terrariums mostly for kicks, but it also occurred to me recently that I could pick up a nice chunk of change building and installing designer terrariums as a side job. Thanks as always for the great info.

    Ebay Seller ShermanTP (from Wisconsin) carries a number of the species plants from Ecuagenera. I dunno if he imports direct or what but he always has new stuff from them so he's one to watch.

    Just tell him you want an outter box if you order the 5 kilo bale of Chilean sphagnum!
