A relatively small species which smells strongly of cinnamon.
Lovely. I am not familiar with this species at all. The richness of the colors are striking!
That's great! Looks like it's growing in kanuma?
Thank you both!
It is indeed, mostly pure kanuma but with some gravel and wood around the surface.
Very nice! It’s good to be reminded how big orchidaceae is as I’ve never heard of this.
Have you tried that medium with other Diuris? I tried D. behrii and D. magnifica last year. D. behrii looked similar vegetatively to your D. palustris, but didn't do that well. D. magnifica seemed to do okay and produced new tubers, but didn't bloom. It's currently dormant. I grew them in a 80% perlite/20% coco peat mix.
Yes, all of my other Diuris are in the same medium, but I have only been using it for a year. It is working great so far, my D. behrii (or a related species) seem to enjoy it.
It is a lovely thing.
That's such a great size for that genus. Definitely one of my favorite Australian terrestrials.
