I see that this is an old thread (sorry) but I just found it since I would consider this stuff to be under "Terrariums". I didn't realize until I looked just how tiny "Tiny" meant! Haighr- I really like your orbs! Especially the one with the puppy, it is great for dog lovers. Generally I don't care for "fake" decor items, but it is fun and I am a sucker for dogs! Here are a couple of my orbs. I LOVE them and want to get a dozen or so more to hang in my sunroom! Speaking of mine, how do you keep yours from getting spotty? I was misting my air plant that was in one, but it gets the glass all spotty. I took it out because of that and have decided to stop misting the moss in the others because of it. Unfortunately, I took the pics before wiping them clean. But here they are anyway. One has jewel orchid (Anoectochilus reinwardtii) and some moss, the other was when I had the Tillandsia in one. I also have a Sempervivum arachnoideum in one but cant' find the pic.
To the OP- I realized after posting that I am essentially highjacking, I really only meant for a dialogue about orbs, sorry to hijack! On the bright side, my orbs do make yours look all the more fantastic! /:)
Morning, no worry about "hijacking" lol that is what the thread is for. Nice job with your orbs, never worked with the air plants but looks neat.
I don't mist mine, I use a spoon and just put a bit of water around the plants that way. Succulents don't really like misting.
I have made and sold several. Some beachy scenes which are really nice.
What exactly do you put in the orbs? Like could you possibly give me a list of ingredients? My aunt gave me one of these that had a beginner kit in it, but I moved and the ingredients got old before I could put them in the orb but I still tried but everything died.
The solid depends on your plant choice. I have had the best luck using succulent plants In a mixture of potting mix and perlite. Have fun. I usually just use 1-3 small succulents then stone, sand or driftwood accents. Oth any small item of preference. I made one with a beach scene and used a tiny treasure chest of jewels. Have fun.
