    I have heaps of Orchids still in the non-flowering stage. I will show you the ones that have flowered .
    Some of my orchids are native to cape york rainforests, others are tropical from other countries,mostly SE asia....

    First one grows in our rainforest garden very high up in large trees. When there is gale force wind for a long period a large tree branch can break off and come crashing down , several have just missed me over the years.If we are lucky there could be pencil orchids attached to the fallen branch ,in which case they can be tied to tree trunks lower down where viewing at flowering time is lovely.
    Here are some photo's ,some high up in the trees taken by my daughter with her u- beaut camera and some lower down that we have tied on trees .they love palm trees to grow on .....


    Dendrobium tetrafolium. Pencil orchid......




















































    I must stop here and return for the next Orchid epecies .Visitors have arrived but I will return . :donald:

    What a fantastic orchid, Pixie!! :cool3: No wonder it is called a pencil orchid. The stems really do look like pencils. They are so long!!! They sure do love the tropical climate & grow so easily as an epiphyte there. We are green with envy. :sun: :photos:

    Looking forward to seeing the rest. :excited:
