Orchid Terrarium Growing orchids in a terrarium is becoming more and more popular—just keep it out of direct sunlight as the interior will get too hot for this exotic flower.

Remove the orchid from its store-bought pot. I like to give the plant a fresh start by cleaning off the roots under running water. The roots are usually pretty compacted, so do so very gently and be careful not to break any of them — the running water will help loosen the moss and/or bark you are getting rid of. If you notice any dead roots (black and hollow), now is a good time to remove them.

Modeled after the Wardian cases first built for growing ferns in the early 1800s, this terrarium creates a warm, humid environment that encourages plant growth, no matter what the temperature outside. The terrarium is crafted from wrought iron with a pointed arch and cutout trefoil motifs. The glass doors close to help seal in moisture. Really unique indoor piece. Found at Gump’s also at Smith&Hawken. I like it's tall enough for the moth orchid!
