TERRA BASE is a new product developed for keeping small orchids, ferns, moss growing in a state close to the condition of natural habitat. This lovingly crafted clay product opens up the possibility of bringing a striking piece of rainforest into your living room and keeping small orchids, ferns and mosses that otherwise grow on rainforest tree trunks in a state that comes close to their natural habitat. The Terra Base is planted with mosses and epiphytes (by binding or glueing) and placed inside a glass container (e.g. in the Neo Glass AIR tank). The plants are supplied by filling the Terra Base M with water, which seeps through the pores of the pottery and also provides a cooling effect during the warm summer days through evaporation. The plants can also be sprayed with DOOA Wabi-Kusa Mist.
I’ve had this for a little over a week and already I’m successfully growing moss I collected up the side. It’s easy to see how and why epiphytes would enjoy this planter. Will be ordering another one as soon as I find space!
