    Default Pterostylis banksii

    Heya, here is another that has decided its time to bloom. This is like a bulb (daff etc) where it comes up, flowers, then dies down for the winter. 2 months to go!

    So am i....i havnt bloomed it before, but collected it in bloom from its little colony (just one, not the whole lot...). Last year it almost came into bloom, but a little leaf slug (he was living inside the pot, i found) decided to hollow out the stem.
