Plant compositions: (violet) Anthurium andreanum ‘Zizou’, Hedera helix var., moss, gravel, soil.
The capsule belongs to the collection Gardens, in which inside we will find the miniature garden, made of dwarf species of plants with very decorative and tiny foliage. The centrepiece of that composition, lila Anthurium, hails from the rainforests of South America. It is known as a flamingo flower or, because of shapes of brightly coloured flower spathes, a painter’s palette. Long-lasting flowers are particularly interesting in that variety, eye-catcher inside of the glass: ‘Zizou’ variety more than a painter palette brings to mind the flying wings of a bird. And with violet colour, it would be definitely a flying flamingo flower.
Anthurium, after flowering, might flower again, but because of specific microsystem of the terrarium is could not be guaranteed. Then terrarium would be adorned by decorative glossy green leaves.
To complement the composition, apart of moss, is a used a tiny variety of Hedera helix, with less obvious leaves shape in mixed shades of green.
This terrarium is hand made in Berlin, inside of recycled eco-glass which has a slightly greenish tint and tiny air bubbles within its structure. The capsule is closed with a cork lid.
