Excellent, Sylvi with amazing photos! I think you need to write this up as an article and submit it to the AOS magazine Orchids. Please consider this seriously. I will be happy to help with editing.. :)

Hi Adrienne, thank's for your compliment :D - writing an article sounds interesting... :think: - I'll ask Olaf what he thinks :) - Adrienne, maybe we should get members of AOS first?

Sylvi and Olaf,

I sent you a PM a couple of months ago saying something like this:

"Wow -- what great terrariums -- what great design and automation -- just wait until the rest of our members see your photos -- they'll be so excited and want to buy their own -- you ought to construct kits and sell them through the internet -- or perhaps through the global big box stores".

Congratulations on creating such interest and excitement on the forum.

Well done!

Dave

Exactly!

Or at least do a Maker's article about it! :mrgreen:

Dear friends,
We were really busy the last weeks but have been already thinking about it and still are ... :think: need to check the costs for building them and how many would be interested... :think: :shhh:

Wow! I just read the entire thread and I love this project. Very well done you two! The plants look fabulous. Congratulations. And like everyone else who's posted, I'm looking forward to seeing kits from you or complete sets available at my nearest Ikea. :mrgreen:

Cheers.
Jim

Good morning all,

Olaf and Sylvi may find that the complexity of international shipping, banking, order processing etc -- when combined with small sales volumes -- disqualify kits as an option. Plus, yet hard to believe, they may have other plans for their free time.

For now, why not use the information they have already posted? For example, check out their post in GROWING AREAS / "Growing indoors in a mini terrarium". They take us all the way from a "small manual terrarium" to a "large automated rain forest". All we need to do is buy the materials ourselves.

Dave

No matter what they decide to do it's a really cool concept, very cool orchids and it's awesome how happy the plants are....down to the mosses!
Great job Sylvi and Olaf! You should be proud of yourselves! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi fellow orchid enthusiasts! :D

It's really cool to read all your friendly comments, your encouraging words and your compliments.
The last days we were really thinking hard about how to make it possible... Germany or Europe is one thing, international shipping the other... We are no merchants and not experienced in planning such a thing. Yesterday we talked to a good friend who owns an orchid nursery to probably make plans together with him. He could help a lot. So that's the point were we are right now - planning and thinking how do make such a project possible the best way.
We'll keep you all updated as soon as we know more.

Update - the Lepanthes seem to love their glass, we are still adjusting and this version seems to work very good. The Lepanthes grow on a piece of wood (Wine) covered with moss. The glass is filled with Seramis and covered with moss, too. The two little Lepanthes colonies are expanding and growing well, all the time in flower.

Need to take better photos later. This was just the phone cam ;)

Freaking amazing. Your camera phone is amazing as well. So, when are you writing an article about this?
