The new Phalaenopsis parishii flower had fully opened by the following day - 12th April 2016. Phalaenopsis parishii is a deciduous plant in its native environment, in cultivation however, without the distinct changes in the seasons, it is usually evergreen. Phalaenopsis parshii is usually found on moss covered branches overhanging streams - in humid environments. I hope this miniature orchid will grow well inside my BiOrbAir terrarium.

My Miniature Orchid Trial BiOrbAir Terrarium, as pictured on the 9th April 2016 after some re-organisation, and the addition of some new miniature orchids. Currently Lepanthopsis astrophora 'Stalky', Masdevallia decumana, Masdevallia rechingeriana, Bulbophyllum falcatum 'Minor' and Dryadella simula are all in flower inside this terrarium. Domingoa purpurea has produced flower spikes, but the flowers are yet to open.
