RE: Up date on my terrarium 2

Good day to you Ana,
Your terrarium is so beautiful. The selection of plants are variety of colors like a Spring painting. Very impressive. How long have you been involved with terrariums? Yours is the most colorful terrarium I think I have ever seen. Thank you for sharing your prized hobby. It is clear to me how very knowledgable you are in terrariums. You mentioned your mushrooms but I am in awe with all of it.

What kind of episca is that purply one? I keep thinking I need to get an episca or two for my terr, but I wonder if they would rot, since gesneriads in general do not like constantly moist soil. Has yours flowered?

RE: Up date on my terrarium 2

Thank you!
I had terrariums on and off for many years. I love miniatures, and love to work with small landscapes and plants.
I don't make them too complicated, with large waterfalls, foggers, and all that fancy stuff that the experts do, (and they should because it is an art), but I do it for my enjoyment and low maintenance.
The Episcias are:
the dark red (almost purple) is Strawberry Patch, and the other, more to the brownish color is: Chocolate cream.
Mine love it! The temp in the terr. is an average 85 and the humidity is at 84, it gets in the upper 70's at night when I turn the lights and the waterfall off. I water them at least twice a week and spray them almost every day, they just thrive, in the picture I just finished cutting almost half off and right now they are growing full force again.
And yes, they both have bloomed and right now have about 3 buds each, one is a bright red, the chocolate one and the Strawberry is pale orange, very cute! Take a look at the photo on my update 1 the chocolate cream is blooming.

Ah, yes, strawberry patch. I come across that name again and again. I have to buy one! Did you get yours at Rob's?
