    Smile Cyp candidum

    Here are a couple pics that I took of Cyp candidum growing near me in the wild. This particular population has hundreds of plants in bloom each year. It is hard to walk through without stepping on them! Thanks to Mother Nature and Evolution for these beauties!

    Very nice. Time for me to go look for some here or on the island. I think I'll have more luck in a gardencentre tough. Great pics.

    Within an hour drive from Cleveland, my field buddy and I have located this one, Cyp parviflorum var. parviflorum, and Cyp, reginae. There are also quite a few bogs in our area and we have found many species of Platanthera and Spiranthes, as well as Galearis spectabilis, Goodyera species, and many more! This is what has driven my love of orchids. Thanks for taking a look!

    These are fantastic! Finding beautiful native plant's in the wild has to be one of the most rewarding things. Are there any main indicators you look for when trying to find particular species (such as cyp.)? I've not found any cyps in the wild here - mind you i'm surrounded by suburbia - but they have to be somewhere! Wonderful finds!

    Habitats for different Cyps are species-dependent. Cyp candidum likes open, full sun locations especially fen meadows/sedge meadows. Cyp reginae was my favorite find because I was standing next to it for about 2 minutes before I saw it! It was in a semi-shady, very mucky fen. We also found Cyp parviflorum there although I believe it prefers boggy areas more. If I see sedge meadows or sphagnum moss everywhere and I step into it and sink in up to my hip then there is a good chance of finding something good there!!! Skunk cabbage is a good sign as well! Good hunting!!!
