White Orchids

Probably Caladenia alpina

  1. I really like orchids a lot. I try to buy one every year at this time when they are on sale. Just got a pinkish purple one. I wish they would have some of the more unique ones for sale here but they don’t – unless you go to an expensive nursery. But I’m happy with the ones I have so far. I really enjoy seeing all the different types of them on your posts, Tone.

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€ I have three on my deck – but don’t collect the wild ones because that would be wrong. Two are quite large family heirlooms – I will post photos shortly, waiting for the second one’s flowers to open up, the other is a small one given to me by a neighbour, which I haven’t seen flower yet.

      1. I once saw an exhibition of orchids and was amazed at all the types. Would love to have one of each! But it was then that I realized that they don’t all look like the standard ones for sale at our local Costco. I understand about not collecting the wild ones, but wouldn’t it be great if you could somehow propagate them? Maybe take a cutting or root part or however they spread – I’m note even sure how they do that.

      2. I have to admit being tempted with the more prolific ones and they are just up the hill from me so local, but Iโ€™m happy to find them in the wild. Iโ€™m in a Tassie Orchid group on Facebook and some of the ones they find are truely weird and absolutely stunning!
