That Caladenia is stunning. What media do you grow in? I am tempted to order Caladenia seed and try flasking them, but I'm scared of the media and mycorrhiza requirements

Yes I agree with you. Your Caladenia latifolia alba looks very beautiful and healthy. How many tubers to you have from this species? Do they mulitple well? How many of them are flowering?

I cultivate also Australian tuber orchids.
A few of them will flower this year.
Pterostylis hildae: 3 of over 20 will flower
Myrmechila trapeziformis: 6 of 12 will flower

I use a mix of perlite, seramis, pumice and a little coconut fiber

Thank you. Yes, it seems to multiply well, I started three years ago with a bulb, this year there are six plants, four have bloomed

A Calanthe hybrid purchased from the local garden centre two years ago at a very reasonable price. Half of the plant was planted in a frame in the garden and the other half in a pot that I keep indoor during winter. Both are doing well.  The flowers are a bit too pastel for my taste, but nice to have indoor this time of the year.

Here is my first Bletilla Coritani gx (formosana ochracea) seedling. It is an F2 generation, so hopefully other F2 clones may show colour variation next year.

Dactylorhiza are peaking now.

D. praetermissa, D. purpurella (small form from NW Jutland) and assorted Dacts in the vegetable garden.

Ponerorchis
Only survivor from 2 different lots of 12 from Thomson & Morgan many years ago. Most lasted for one year with some hanging on for 2 or 3.

Goodyera oblongifolia. The flowers are small, but quite attractive when you get close. The seeds were a kind gift from a forumist.
