    Thank you Jacob! I dont have much growing space, so unfortunately I have to densely plant what I have.

    Growing space is a real luxury. Looks like you are getting the most out of the space you have.

    I constructed a new terrarium a week or so ago and am happily waiting for new orchids to place in it. It's nowhere near as big and complex as my 260 gallon Panama project, but it was fun nonetheless.

    It's an ordinary 29 gallon fish tank I converted to have sliding front doors. The plants all have distribution in Peru, although I'll admit some are from neighboring Ecuador.

    At the moment, it's mostly a house for Anthuriums, Peperomia, and ferns. The few orchids that are in there at the moment include Scaphosepalum rapax and Dichaea ancoraelabia. I'll be adding a few more this week and will be sure to post photos. If anyone has any mini's that are warm growing for sale/trade, please pm me!

    Enjoy!

    Anyone have any recommendations on I-W growing mini's that are native to Peru? I'd like to build the orchid diversity in here.

    Thank you!

    Updated photos with some orchids added in... Added a few Masdevallia from Peru along with an interesting Maxie.

    Some updates here...

    These two are currently blooming amongst a few others I have yet to photograph inside my 55 gallon terrarium. This will soon be ripped apart and reconfigured to accommodate new plants and a new theme- mid elevation, Peru.

    Pleurothallis hemirohda


    Pleurothallis schweinfurthii

    Got another one blooming in the Peru setup. This one was labeled Masdevallia bicolor. Sorry for the blurry photo. The shot was angled and through glass

    I don't know what it is, but I don't think it is M bicolor.

    I didn't think so either. I've had bicolor years ago and the sepal tails were not recurved, but straight. Plus the bloom time is off. If I remember correctly my other one bloomed in early summer.

    Any thoughts?
