The internal filling of the orchidarium is usually called the interior. These are so special objects that in their design, as a rule, they do not save on trifles and create highly decorative compositions imitating natural conditions that look like jungles or corners of wildlife in a display case. Imitation of the rainforest is a classic. For orchidarium, you can fantasize and experiment with style unlimitedly.
If orchidariums imitate the jungle, driftwood, branches, bark fragments, and other “blocks” imitating the usual for epiphytic orchids are usually introduced into it from the number of variants specially crafted and intended for growing epiphytic plants – from artificial imitations to natural models that require regular replacement.
At the bottom of any orchidariums, an imitation of soil or sheet litter is placed – they create a claydite or stone crumb base, covered with a layer of sphagnum, which not only plays the role of a decorative background, but also creates an optimal environment for water accumulation and humidity maintenance. Plants are placed on supports or snags so that they do not touch the bottom.
Other options for arranging orchidariums may even include the absence of additional decor using special containers or flowerpots. Plants can be planted on blocks or placed on a substrate – it all depends on what effect you want to produce and what style you choose.
Orchidariums can be strict, with plants arranged in a certain order on a “clean” background, creating the illusion of solid landscaping, like a regular collection of plants or imitating fragments of landscapes. In addition to additional plants, you can use accessories and decor to create an atmosphere.
