Beautiful, Aldo. A hybrid or selection of a species?

Les Nesbitt is a friend of my parents and we used to visit him at his nursery when I was a boy. I wrote to him recently and he's still selling terrestrial orchids by mail order now. It's nice to see such a fuss being made about our Australian native orchids.

Jamus, do you know if there are any commercial sources of the Thelymitra variegata complex & Th. yorkensis or are they ungrowable?

Steve, I bought the plant in Germany, from Mr. Heinrich Beyrle (myorchids.de).
