During the week I was able to check up and see what some of our South Australian orchids were doing.
The leaves of Cyrtostylis reniformus were up with a couple of early buds just beginning to appear. I like the stripes on the leaves and the colour of them. They are very distinctive. This is the later flower of the two species of Cyrtostylis with the earlier being Cyrtostylis robusta.
A finished captual of Diplodium robustum. This is where the seed will form. They were still all facing the hillside.
A nice little colony of Diplodium robustum. Note the leaves at the base, as these are the same species, but will not flower this year.
An Urochilus sanguineus out in flower.
The Veined Helmet Orchids, Corysanthes diemenica were only just opening. Many were still in bud.
