    Hi

    Has anyone here tuberous australian orchids in culture? Which species are easy to grow? I have some tuberous drosera...they can grow in the same tray, aren't they?

    I am searching especially for nice flowering species which are relativly easy to grow and don't grow to tall monster plants (windowsill culture/with lights).

    So anyone?

    Thanks & good growing!

    I grow many types of Australian tuberous orchids. I live in Australia though so it may be difficult to get them to you. Email me if you are interested.

    Hi Jan,

    I grow Pterostylis curta, one of the Australian "Greenhood" orchids, it's very easy. I see you have located P.nutans: would you be interested in a swap next year (when I should have spare tubers, hopefully) ? ( Either my P.curta for your P.nutans, or for a tuberous Drosera that I haven't yet got! )...
    Kind regards,

    Adam.

    I'm mainly interested in Drosera, Dionaea & Aldrovanda, Hardy Orchids (esp Dactylorhiza), Arums and Ericas (Heaths/Heathers - European + S.African)

    Hi Khai,

    Yes I do have a few Caladenia species. Email me if you'd like some more info. If you are interested we may be able to trade something?

    Sean.
