I have just been doing some symbiotic culture of Platanthera bifolia (B1) and this has grown which is different from anything else. It looks like a rhizome rather than a tuber. Has anyone seen anything like this before- its 3 cm long and 5 months old.

looks like it is a tuber to me, 5 months is long enough for it to start elongating, and this one seems to have just got carried away.   If it where a rhizome it would be much thinner about and you would have more than one growing out.

6 years ago I bought a O. ferrum-equinum and it came up as O. cephalonica. I bought another one last year and this time its O helenae!

Caladenia (latifolia x flava) x flava -a manmade cross which mirrors the hybrid swarms of these species in the wild.


Dactylorhiza romana


Diuris behrii


Changnienia amoena -2nd year of flowering. Obtained as a young plant from a German source, it took 4 years to reach flowering size. Grown in a perlite/moler clay granules mix with a small amount of pine duff and watered with rainwater acidified by cider vinegar (7.5mls per litre). Dormant from May to September when it needs to be gently dried but never parched.

Beautiful pictures, Steve, in particular of the Changnienia. I tried this species only once and found out that nothing attracts slugs better than this species. It was a short trial, therefore.

Serapias pollinia?
« Reply #25 on: April 19, 2019, 06:57:11 PM »
I want to cross A. laxiflora with a Serapias but have no pollen for the Serapias this year.
Has anyone any serapias pollinia they could send me and I'll send half the seeds I produce back to you?
Thanks

This Calanthe was an impulse buy at Aylsham garden centre this afternoon, seduced by the wonderful sweet scent.
Anyone know what species, it was just labelled Calanthe. And this small bed on the north side of my potting shed is the coolest, shadiest spot I have - do you think it is worth trying it planted out here or should I try to keep it in a pot?

Gail, that Calanthe is in the perfect image of health! I think it may be Calanthe striata, (syn Calanthe sieboldii you can see more here: http://www.orchidspecies.com/calstriata.htm

I tried and failed with C discolor when I was living in Vancouver, so perhaps some others might be able to offer you advice on planting out or not.
Southwestern Nova Scotia,
Zone 6B or above , depending on the year.
