I am building a small orchidarium. It will only be about 2 cubic feet. I will have other plants in there such as some mosses, and miniature bromeliads. The main attraction will be an assortment of very small orchids. I will be ordering a few BS miniatures from different suppliers. But I also thought it would be interesting (and cost effective) to add a flask of a miniature orchid, if I can find them. This would allow the orchidarium to have a little more "complete" look, and It would give me some plants I could trade or give away to people with similar interests in the future. I have spent many hours looking through flask lists and doing searches, and I have yet to locate anyone that sells flasks of any miniature. I suspect that it might be due to the fact that there isn't as high a demand for these small orchids.
If anyone has any sources that might sell flasks or compots of miniature orchids, I would love to hear from you.
Or if anyone has any experience growing orchids in such small enclosures, I would love to get any input you are willing to share. THANKS.
