    Hi and thank you! I use an old aquarium (375 l) to grow a lot of orchids in. Vivarium maybe tells you more? Not sure what the best English word is.

    Of course, this is the full view. But please remember that this is work in progress: I got the aquarium as a birthday gift and went live late summer this year! So these are VERY early days: this is the first bloomer... :-)

    I have a 189 litre aquarium I could utilize. More details, please?

    Well, I basically just put aquarium gravel in the bottom and orchid compost on top. In with a few bits of bark, coconut fiber rope and a small tree branch: then I started planting orchids in there :-). I also have some plants in pots, easier to water those. Aquarium lights and a couple of fans, but I still water manually (mostly by spraying the plants).
