superb photography, David
On the 2nd page I showed some photos of the largest greenhood species baptistii. Here is another Pterostylis baptistii, but this clone comes from Queensland (Mothar Mountain). It doesn't look much different but it does flower much earlier than my other clones. My other more southern clones won't flower until around October.
The flowers all look like beautiful aliens to me.
Fascinating plants. Triffids perhaps?
Well that tears it, I have to grow some Pterostylis. ❤️
Haven't seen P. baptistii here in the USA, mostly P. curta. Thanks for sharing.
What do you do with your plants after the leaves die down?
Super nice, and crisp photos!
Once the leaves start to brown off, I stop watering them. I put them in the garage or wherever, and let them dry right out. This tends to happen around November sometime. In January, I repot them into a new mix and water them. I let them dry out a bit between waterings until I start to see new leaves from where I water regularly.
Fantastic photos too!
First time I have flowered this species from New Caledonia.
I feel a little stupid, wish I had that advice earlier. Mine died down but I didn't reduce watering, now a month later they are coming back up again!
Mine are sitting out on the front entry lots of rain, they’ll probably do the same
