One of my Sarcochilus dilatatus blooming. Hope to get some clearer photos of the flower soon. Miniature VAndaceous species.

Its uncommon here even in Australia where it is native. Here are two more photos. Cork mount. Rather easy to grow on cork if you know what conditions it likes. I never had a problem growing it.

Beautiful plant, not one I've seen before either but now close to my favorite in the genus. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice ! This is endemic to New South wales of Australia that have this available for sale by their growers but it has not yet reached our shores. I have the hartmanii but this is definitely on my wish list.

It is also found in Queensland. It is endangered in NSW and localised to only a few areas. Even in the state of Queensland where it is not endangered it is difficult to track down in the wild.
