The capsule belongs to the collection Gardens. In that collection inside of the terrarium, we will find the miniature garden made of dwarf species of plants with very decorative and tiny foliage. This one is thought for aroid lovers with two rare species of Alocasia – ‘Pink Princess’ and ‘Silver Dragon’.
Alocasia is a genus of broad-leaved rhizomatous or tuberous perennial plants from the family Araceae native to tropical and subtropical Asia to Eastern Australia (and widely cultivated elsewhere).
The tallest Alocasia of that composition is ‘Yucatan Princess’. Its leaves are dark with maroon undersides and stems.
The middle part will be taken over by Alocasia. The species chosen for that terrarium is a ‘Silver Dragon’. It is a very beautiful, rare dwarf Alocasia, usually making on top of the plant-people wishlist. She has beautiful broad-grained leaves, with dark green veins on the silver greyish-green.
The lowest plant is heart leaf fern (Hemionitis arifolia). It is a small, slowly growing fern with leaves in the shapes of the heart. It has intensive green foliage, which underlines both Alocasias.
This terrarium is hand made in Berlin, inside of the hand-made floristic glass. The capsule is closed with a cork lid.
Each capsule has its own name, meet Marissa.
Short care tips for terrariums/flaschengarten:
Water 2 to 3 times a year on average, depending on the moisture level inside of the terrarium.
Prune once a year – just a bit. The ivy and fern could need some cut.
Keep out of direct sunlight.
