It has to be one of the most beautiful Sinningia's I've ever seen! I have a couple of the mini's and a couple of the micro mini's but I sure do love the looks of that big Peachy Propeller ... the foliage is pretty and those blooms are such a gorgeous color!

By the way ... I'd love to see a photo of your terrarium, I think I see Calathea ? leaves in that pic. I have two Calathea plants, one is in a terrarium and the other sits out on a table but I've been thinking of transplanting it to one of the terrariums.

These pics look horrible but it gives you an idea. And yes, that's a swan feather being used as a kind of stake.

Oh, that is very nice! What size tank is that? I have a 10 gal rectangle and a 40 gal Hexagon with lights and a few different glass jars with lids that sit on a table in front of an east facing window.

That's a 72 gallon tank.
One of the lights went so I have to try to find a replacement.

I'd love to have one that size! My husband has a 150 gal marine aquarium (salt water) and I keep saying that I'd like to have it to plant as a terrarium. Smiling It's his pride and joy though and some of the fish and corals have resided in there for years so I doubt he will tire of it anytime soon ... and there's no space at the moment for another tank that size.
