Hello Paul and Shelley - to put my two bobs worth in about our lovely
terrestrial orchids, I have a very similar range as you Paul, plus
Hyacinth, Gastrodia and the rare and it is thought endemic, Violet Town
Spider orchid (*Caladenia *species affinity *rosella *(Violet Town).   They
may not be as colourful as their cousins in the west but are very
delicately beautiful all the same.  I've never tried to grow any beyond a
couple of Pterostylus species, but I doubt they're easy.  I'd be interested
in your list Shelley, for any future trips north.  Terry
