Step I: Take orchid plant out of it’s pot as carefully as you can
Step II: dump into apothecary jar
Step III: Admire pretty new “terrarium”
I know, you were hoping for something more special than that, but it was really that simple.
I’m going to get additional soil since there was not much in the pot, and I feel it needs a bit more now that it’s spread out over a larger surface area. See how the roots look like they need a little more soil coverage? A quick trip to a nursery will fix that!
With the light near our windows, and the slightly mottled glass, this was VERY hard to photograph, but trust me when I say it’s SO pretty!
If you think about it, an apothocary jar (or cloche) is kind of the perfect environment for an orchid – they love lush, humid environments, and the lid on the apothecary jar keeps things nice and humid… it looks so pretty in our living room, but if this orchid ends up dying in a few weeks, it will still be totally worth it! It was only $7!!
Hope you had a great weekend!!
