Thanks for posting these Steve.

The variation in Orchidaceae is amazing. I was particularly surprised by the 'Donkey Orchid'!

The Donkey Orchid (Diuris) grow wild in my neighborhood along with many wonderful Oz terrestrial species, the helmet orchids being my favorite.

Hi Steve. Thanks for posting. Seedlings from your T. rubra look like this now, almost two years after I received the seeds. Should come out of the jar this autumn.

My Dactylorhiza ochroleuca x sambucina hybrids are flowering now for the first time. I hoped to get some nice, easily grown, yellow dacs, which should not be too much to ask given the nice colors of the parents. What I got was different shades of purple with a yellow tone. I have crossed some of the lighter hybrids and hopefully, there will be a few yellows in the F2 generation 3 years from now.

Well done with the Thelymitra seed Anders!!!

The Dact ochroleuca x sambucina seedlings you gave me have also flowered in light purple.

A couple more Thelymitra:

Cypripedium parviflorum.

Rimmer de Vries collected it in a power line right of way in SE Michigan and shared a start with me in 2012.  I dug it last year to divide but the clump was so congested I was only able to get three starts to share with others.

Anacamptis coriophora. This is darker than I was expecting (and also smaller-flowered). Nice little thing though!
