Since I could lift a camera I have delighted in images of
Australia terrestrial orchids, be they mine or someone else's.
Your handiwork is a pleasure to see.

You have created an excellent site with beautiful pictures. I adore these species which are rarely seen here in Europe. My site is www.erdorchideen.de and I am working on propagation of Terrestrial Orchids.

Great photos! I love our little native terrestrials they're sooo cool! If only everyone could grow caladenias like they grow out in the wild. lol

This is the best orchid site for Sth Western Australia on the net. It is better than the reference books I have. I was devastateded when it disappeared recently with the Orchidwire site but by chance I have found it again. Fantastic. I hope your site is with us for a long time to com.

does anybody know if it is possible to legally buy strile cultures of caladenia species (no matter which), preferable in Germany?

Hello there, I am a Perth Chiropractor and amateur photographer and have become a extrovert in respect to chasing orchids . Local orchids are fine , no problems but when I look for the more glamorous that is where my age (61) of innocence comes in. I have been trying to use your co ordinates listed to find many orchids but having bought a GPS I thought it would be easy---however the location logs that you list only designate a LARGE area rather than some reasonably defined area! When I say large, I think you know what I mean , like an are of 1/2 to 1km square , almost impossible to cover. My disappointment hence when one travels 4-5hours south and north in 2 weeks to find orchids--very disappointing. Especially diasappointing when the ethos of most "societies" include the word "educate" and "inform" the public as well as protect the orchids. Its not as if there are thousands of people out there trampling the bush down, These orchids will stay hidden for another 100 or more years without being seen--begs the question why ? Who are they being protected from ? In closing your pics are good but nothing like the real thing. Kind Regards Dr Russell Hodder

Hi, great site
please can you say me where to byuy caladenia plants. i live in France ans as I discovered this orchid I fall in love with it.... greater in natural env but should be great at home too ;)
thanx for your reply
keep going on

sorry for the very late reply.
The GPS coordinates are obviously inaccurate for various reasons. The main one is that, yes, some sites have been destroyed by people digging up plants. It happens, really.
Then some of these species are classified as critically endangered (Rhizanthella, Caladenia ultima, melanema, erythrochila, dundasiae....) and we are not allowed to publish their locations. Finally, most if not all of these sites were given to me by members of the Western Australia Native Orchid Study and Conservation Group and I feel like I can't give these sites to everybody without their permission.
My best advice to find these plants is to contact them (see the link page on the Caladenia website).
