    Tipularia discolor (terrestrial orchid) for trade

    Anyone want this little one-leafed terrestrial orchid? It flowers in the summer, grows one leaf in the winter. I've got a bunch of mature plants this year.

    Here's a pic I found online. Top is green, bottom is purple.

    Not looking for anything special.

    I have a few T. discolors growing near my house. How long do they take to reach maturity? I also read that transplanting them causes them to die--has this been your experience with them? Could you substitute peat for rotten leaf/wood litter as a medium?
