Plant list - Orchids

We only stock six terrestrial orchid species. During summer and early autumn these orchids die back to an underground tuber, but in late autumn-winter leaves appear, then a beautiful, fascinating flower. We hope to have more orchids available in the future. We are always happy to get excess tubers from orchid devotees to grow up numbers of new species.

For general information about growing Australian orchids, see this article.
