This is my Rhododendron 'Alisa Nicole'. It lives in my 20 gallon vertical terrarium. I think it has been growing here for 3 or maybe 4 years. This is the fourth blooming event it has had and the second one for the year. For those of you not familiar with these, this is not the kind of Rhododendron you put outside in your garden in the Northeast of the USA. These are tropical Rhododendrons named Vireyas naturally found in South-East Asia and northern Australia. I really love the soft colours vireyas produce.

Hello all,

This is Rhododendron 'Saint Valentine'
This is another one of my Vireyas, tropical Rhododendrons from South-east Asia and Northern Australia. This is another hybrid which I bought because I liked the shape of the flowers, compact size of the shrub and above all, the redness of the blooms.

Thing is, if you can grow orchids, you can grow Vireyas. I hope you all enjoy the following progression of photos over a period of 5 days.

Wow!

Here is Isabelia virginalis flowering on a hat. Not sure if anyone has done orchid hat culture but it can work.

I think Hydrophyte said this was a ginger, he threw it in as a freebie and it stayed outside for 2 years + where my cat kept it eaten to the ground. I finally put it in a viv about a year ago and it got this beautiful bright orange bloom.

Looks great! Do you have any threads that elaborate on this vivarium? Equipment, parameters etc...?

Hi Chris, I don't have a thread for the build and has no live animal in it. It's a 12" cube, I use an 18W Chihiros A-Series Aquatic Aquarium Fish Tank LED, and it has a dimmer for 5 levels of light and I put it on the 3 level for about 12 hrs/day. I also have a 2" low speed fan behind the wood on 24/7. There's also a donut humidifier behind the wood that turns on early morning for 30 minutes and in the evening for 15 minutes. The humidity is almost at a constant 90%. The temperature is around 60-70 in the winter and it can get to the high 90s in the summer and low around 76 at night. Here is pic for the full view.

So this one's fun. It's BLC Yellow Bird, two pictures of the same bloom.

This one is from the day after it opened:


And here's one from 2.5 weeks later:

I, too, have a Yellow Bird, and it's one of my favorite plants. I love watching the blooms change color. They stick around for a while, too, and have a lovely fragrance.

Tillandsia ionantha 'Guatemalan Select'



Not the most rare thing ever, but I always get amused when these tillandsia put off a flower.

Super excited for my first orchid bloom! Only about 2 weeks after planting too!

It's a harella odorata. Tiny but beautiful flower.

Edit: not sure why the picture is sideways but you get the idea.

Hi all,

I had a tropical blueberry harvest, a small one, but this is unique I think, so I am sharing the experience. The berries come from Sphyrospermum buxifolium which is a beautiful vine with little hairy blueberries. The berries are lightly sweet with a quality that refreshes you, not minty though.

I include a shot of the tank and you can see lots of the vines criss-crossing the tank, and a picture of the harvest, only 20 something berries. There are however twice as many berries currently maturing.
