    about 5 cm long and 2-3 wide. Oh and the third, i highly doubt you would find it at a nursery, simply due to the fact i crossed it last season (inadvertantly) and you are 100 % guaranteed NOT to find any arachnorchis species in any nursery of any type

    the 'Winika' a maori word meaning itself, 'little orchid', of which winika is the genus name. the Tainui tribe Waka is named after the orchids genus name.
