Here's my BiOrbAir terrarium after the re-arrange, as pictured on the 14th January 2016. Prior to this photograph being taken, I took out all of the plants and compost, then added brand-new coir compost, that I purchased from Reef One, and new moss. I re-planted some of my old ferns and added some new miniature orchids.

Here's my Earthbox as pictured on the 21st February 2016. As you can see the vegetables have been growing well. I haven't had to water this container since I set it up, I haven't carried out any maintenance of any kind, I just left the vegetables to grow. I have harvested some of the stems and leaves from the chard, but other than that, the vegetables have been left to grow.

This morning the second bud on my Masdevallia decumana opened. There's just one more bud which is yet to open, this one will open in the next few days. This Masdevallia decumana is pictured on the 3rd February 2016, inside my Miniature Orchid Trial BiOrbAir terrarium.
