plants – especially orchids – are often kept in closed containers for care in the room because of the better conditions. You want the harmful effects of the living environment – like air that is too dry, excessive warmth, Tobacco smoke and dust build-up – keep away from the plants. Setting up a plant window is not always possible or desirable. Containers glazed on all sides represent an interim solution. How you want to name it, is an open question. Plant showcases is right; Tropicarium sounds a bit more sophisticated and continues the community of many tropical plants – u.U. even as a biotope – ahead. There is still scope for size; From small containers to large ones, everything is possible. They are not available for sale in a standardized way; the inventiveness of hobbyists can unfold here. Since these containers usually receive relatively little daylight, Sufficient lighting is the most important requirement. Ventilation is just as important, because the interaction of heat and moisture in a small space creates a dull atmosphere, which is not beneficial for most orchids.
Larger showcases can determine the effect of a room, u.U. equated to a piece of furniture, provided that the craftsmanship of the material is good. The possibility, to use them as a space-dividing object, just remembered here in passing. However, the demands on the purely aesthetic effect are then far greater. Orchids are quite unadorned when they are not in bloom, so other plants would then have to serve as a supplement, which act accordingly. One strives for showcases, in which the required environmental factors can be automatically regulated. A longer absence of the carer, for example during vacation time, could thus be bridged safely. However, a condition is then, that the plant population is tailored to fairly uniform requirements. Many of the problems of a display case are similar to those of the plant window and are discussed below.
