Orrery (rejected design)

    Newer Older

    After patiently feeding them through the opening, I was so happy when I saw the lovely proportions of these Pitcher plants in this vase. Imagine, then, my dismay to discover the second vase in this pair needed for The Orrery, had been broken in my absence. I will mourn it's loss, as they have been particular favourite vases of mine, which I have not allowed other people to use!

      Hi what is the cultivar of your pitcher Sarracenia? It is just beautiful!

    6. Ken Marten 57 months ago | reply

      I'm afraid I don't know what the particular cultivar was in this case. I saw them at the market and I agree they are quite beautiful. They are still thriving inside the bottle vase, I've not had to water them once. Usually when we use these plants in our contracts, they barely make it through a week due to lack of light & humidity.

      Awesome is the word. The top is open and you don't have to water it? How does it work?

      Thank you Bob Cat, I have e-mailed the website concerned!

      Hey Ken,
      This is absolutely amazing! I notice you mentioned in the description that you fed the plants - I wondered what you fed them with?

    11. Ken Marten 24 months ago | reply

      Ah, what I meant was that it took me some time to carefully place the plants through the small opening in the vase/jar, but I used the word feed. I didn't actually attempt to feed the actual plants, although if I had spotted a dead fly, I might have been tempted!

      I would love to order this terrarium from you. Please let me know if this is possible.
      It is far and away the best one I have seen so far.

      The important thing is to only water with distilled water. tap water is too mineral rich and will kill them.

      That vase belongs on the window sill of a quiet, cool, peaceful reading room. It's just gorgeous and would add nicely to the serenity of the room.

      That beautiful arrangement speaks of serenity and peace. I honestly think it belongs in my reading room, on the windowsill. Thank you for sharing it.
