With spring's arrival, 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.
Then, for understanding, let's turn to a more common term - an aquarium.
An aquarium is a closed space that allows you to hold water inside and creates a comfortable habitat for fish and other water bodies inhabitants.
The name itself is a combination of 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 such a house for plants, engineers drew attention to the geometric shapes available in polyhedra.
The polyhedra's surface is exquisite, can be completely closed to maintain certain climatic conditions, such as humidity and temperature. Light penetrates inside from all sides, and also, the polyhedron faces allow you to make a neat door inside.
Florarium - in the form of a regular quadrangular pyramid.
Florarium - dodecahedron.
Florarium - icosidodecahedron.
Florarium - an icosahedron.
Florarium - cubooctahedron.
Florarium - rhombododecahedron.
Florarium - rhombocubooctahedron.
Florarium - rhombotriacontahedron.
Florarium - regular hexagonal prism.
Florarium - tetrahedron.
Florarium - truncated octahedron.
Florarium - snub cube.
Florarium - cube.
So the models of polyhedra received a new profession - to be home to plants - the florarium!
