Here's my BiOrbAir terrarium after the re-arrange, as pictured on the 14th January 2016. Prior to this photograph being taken, I took out all of the plants and compost, then added brand-new coir compost, that I purchased from Reef One, and new moss. I re-planted some of my old ferns and added some new miniature orchids.

A close up of my Miniature Orchid Trial BiOrbAir Terrarium, as pictured on the 26th January 2016. The first flower on my Masdevallia decumana opened today. Inside this terrarium Lepanthopsis astrophora 'Stalky' has flower buds which will open any day now, and Domingoa purpurea is also in the early stages of producing flowers.

I will share my experiences of planting up my BiOrbAir terrarium and growing miniature orchids and mosses inside

A close up of Sarcococca confusa's unopened flowers. Sarcococca confusa flowers from December to March every year, its sweetly scented, highly fragrant flowers are beneficial to bees and to gardeners, as they lift your spirits and touch your heart as you breathe in their delicious scent.

I used Dalefoot Composts' peat free compost when I potted up this Sarcococca confusa, a highly-scented, winter flowering evergreen shrub. This shrub will be planted out in the spring, as soon as a space becomes available. The pot in this photograph is narrower at its opening than in the middle, with pots such as these, care is required to pot on your plant before it needs repotting so as to avoid damaging the plant's roots as you remove it from the pot.
