Living world inside a polyhedron

Living world inside polyhedron
With the arrival of spring, all the plants around come to life, foliage appears, everything turns green, and flowers bloom. But for home plants summer lasts all year round, of course, provided a comfortable environment. Create such an environment can be individually for each plant. And here we will introduce our reader to such a term as florarium.
 
Perhaps "florarium" for someone it may seem a very unusual word. Then, for understanding, let's turn to a more common term - an aquarium.
What is an aquarium is a closed space that allows you to hold water inside and creates a comfortable habitat for fish and other inhabitants of water bodies.
The name itself is a combination of the words aqua - water, aquarius - a container filled with water.
Florarium by analogy from the words flora is a set of plants, florarium is a container filled with plants.
A feature of the operation of the aquarium is that it must be periodically cleaned, therefore, the design must provide adequate access inside.
As for plants, their vital activity is not as active as in fish and requires much less intervention. Nevertheless, access to the inside at least for watering plants should be.
Developing the design of such a house for plants, engineers drew attention to the geometric shapes available in polyhedra.
The surface of the polyhedra is very elegant, can be completely closed, to maintain certain climatic conditions, such as humidity and temperature. Light penetrates inside from all sides, and in addition, the faces of the polyhedron allow you to make a neat door inside.
