This is a discussion on Drymoanthus adversus within the **NOT IN BLOOM** All Genera forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; Hey all, this is one of my natives. It is a member of the Sarcochilus ...
Hey all, this is one of my natives. It is a member of the Sarcochilus family, and is one of only two species, this one, and D. flavus. D. adversus is more widespread and common as opposed to D. flavus.
I have noticed that this species likes to "conserve" its root growth, it is very slow, and there are few of them. Leaf growth is the same., both in cultivation, and in the wild...this one has been "extradited" from the wild
NB/ the size of the label is about 12cm long.
These ones are of one i have found in situ on a Rewarewa tree........

Oh so sweet, did you start this from flask? I want to try something new, but scared to butcher any orchids! I desperately want to try mounting, and have thought about a Phal. since they seem to be the hardiest that I have.
Wow - I'll be interested to see how this develops.

I didn't even know it was illegal to own certain orchids; embarrassed to say.
Looked at the link- this is going to be a beautiful orchid when it matures!
Thanks so much. I learn so much from the forum, EVERYONE is so helpful! There is so much knowledge bundled into this forum, I just love it. Before I found the forum I spent literally hours serfing the net trying to find the info I needed; and now I see 3/4 of it was WRONG, its all here in one spot! A BIG Thank you to all!
This one is not the hybrid, its the species. quite a cute little thing, 4 flowers could fit quite nicely inside one of your quarters.... here is a pic i found online:
These two pics are of the ones i DO have....
These two are of Drymoanthus flavus, the more rarer and the one i WANT to have
Oh they are so sweet, delicate little ones! I would be afraid to hurt them! They are beautiful! Good luck aquiring the Drymoanthus flavus!
haha lol, no need to worry, you wont get any no matter how hard you try....blame our government.....then again, i might be able to send some seeds if you can find a place to flask, when mine flowers....
