    Australian Terrestrial Orchids

    Well, I've taken the leap into Australian Terrestrial Orchids ! I'm starting with tubers of 4 different species so I figured I'd start this thread right at the beginning........ with some photos of the tubers !

    I'll post updates here as they come.

    Caladenia flava


    Diuris aff. corymbosa


    Elythranthera emarginata


    Thelymitra crinita

    Very interesting where and how the various plants store the reserves for next season's growth.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    I agree, all species seem to have a different yet similar strategy. Both Diuris species look nearly identical. I'm curious what different species in the other genera might look like.

    Here's something to look forward to in the future Johnny.

    I've been growing a few Pterostylis for a few years. For me they are hardy.

    Pterostylis curta
