    Smile Trichosalpinx orbicularis

    Months ago, I posted this when I found its first flowers shortly after receiving it. It was a rather unsatisfying blooming. Few flowers that looked on the dry side. It now lives in an orchidarium and stays wet at all times. I am not sure this is the correct culture, but it is adding 'canes' and flowering. The ugly stem/leaf came on the orchid when it arrived. I did a fungicide soak.

    This time, there are lots of viable buds, on many stems. The flowers are quite small. Tough to image without a good macro lens.

    Very cool looking flowers. Looks like the plant is much happier in your orchidarium than it was before. Whatever your doing seems to be making it happy :-)

    78Terp, that's an adorable specimen... I just love some of the mini's that have many tiny flowers! Some small orchids can be much more attractive and "intriguing" than large, showy ones, that tell us the obvious :-D

    I purchased an orchidarium (terrarium sized mini greenhouse/ still keeping my regular closet sized greenhouse). It will be arriving by Friday/for my minis that require very high levels of humidity/very specific conditions separate from the general population. HOW MANY DO YOU HAVE IN YOURS AND IS IT WORKING OUT WELL? Did you add any additional air circulation or other "modifications"? I'd like to talk with someone who has experience with these "orchidariums" so I can get off on the right foot! THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    I have 3 different fish tanks converted to orchidariums. 10, 20 and 50 gallons. I have low lighting for each so I stick with orchids that want shade. The full spectrum single tubes so far have resulted in flowers. I did add one string of LED white lights to one and that is my bright tank.

    Here is a shot of the 50 gallon tank taken this morning on my way out the door. I have about 20 stuffed in there. A total of around 49 in tanks.
