Before leaving the coast this morning, my wife and myself went down to the beach and saw some Eulophia speciosa growing on the dunes, in sea sand.

Very nice. I hope that they prove easier to grow than disas.
According to Ann Duckworth (President of the SAOC), it is one of the easier South African terrestrials to keep in cultivation as it grows in sandy soils, and provided it does not get overwatered will do well in a pot or local gardens
