    Default Petrostylis nutans

    Petrostylis nutans (nodding greenhood),is terrestrial orchid which grows in moist areas in the open forests around Brisbane.
    The full plant shot didn't turn out. A full plant shot can be found at this Aussie site

    I wasn't expecting it to bloom until spring. Guess it is on a down under schedule.

    You haven't seen anything yet, Jordy. Wait till you see how he measures stuff with his men's ruler. You will be impressed.

    What about people don't use small letter for species? It is very basic but some people just don't seem to be serious/know about it.
