    Default Drymoanthus adversus

    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.

    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.

    Nope, no flasking of these! if you get caught, its a really hefty fine, even jail time! this came from a fellow society member, started by nature, in nature. If you live in a temperate climate, this is the perfect orchid. Problem is, our government has very tough sanctions (it is highly illegal actually...i try and stick to the common growing types ) on collection of native orchids and their propogation, although i think it should be allowed, as they are getting rarer and rarer. Governments can be really stupid! If you look on google, there are some pics of their flowers, this one has yellow pink spotted flowers, while D. flavus has yellow spotted flowers and purple speckled foliage. I will post a link to a hybrid picture if you want, its a Sarcochilus x Drymoanthus.

    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!

    Oh they are so sweet, delicate little ones! I would be afraid to hurt them! They are beautiful! Good luck aquiring the Drymoanthus flavus!
