    This is one of those orchids that few orchid growers know and that wild plant enthusiasts are more likely to recognize. But there are hundreds of species around the world and they can be difficult to identify. Knowing where a plant is from helps narrow it down, but they look pretty similar to me. At least the eastern US species do.

    I have Spiranthes sinensis growing very close to home here in southern Australia. Doesn't look as attractive as this white species though.

    I just looked up S. sinensis. It seems to be more brightly colored, but with fewer, more widely-spaced flowers. I prefer the white flowers, but I'd like to have variety, as well.

    Also, S. diluvialis is nicely scented. Do other Spiranthes have scent? What is it?

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -
