How to Display an Orchid Terrarium

I have the dreaded "black" thumb when it comes to indoor orchids. But I can't pretend that I haven't thought about trying to stick one in a terrarium. I alwayws feared that the roots would not get enough airflow. But it might be worth a try.

Enter CasaSugar's recent orchid-terrarium-tutorial, which looks fairly straight-forward. Pop an orchid in some spahgnum moss in a jar. The article clearly says this is a way to "display" orchids and but- does anyone think it could be a long-term solution?

CasaSugar: This technique only takes about 20 minutes to complete, and you'll cut down how much you need to feed your plant to about once every few months. No, I'm not joking. Want to learn how to display your orchids in terrariums?



  1. Not sure how long they would last - though I've seen this used in garden centres.

  2. Wow that’s a good idea maybe I will try doing it in couple of days but the problem is that I live in Kuwait (dry and hot whether) T_T the whether is dry (all the year) even inside our house. I always water my indoor plants everyday if I didn’t the soil will dry and all the plants will die

  3. Did you try it? How'd it work out?


Let's hear it!
