    Following the recent discussions on Habenaria medusae I have decided to show my plant.
    It is 22" long from the base and up to the tip of the inflorescence. The inflorescence on the left plant shows five swollen fruits which I hand pollinated on the third of October. Fingers crossed. Hab medusae 1.JPG Hab medusae 2.JPG

    Good luck on the fruit. I have tried several times to set seed with outcrosses and never got a thing.

    At least you got flowers... haha!

    It's a nice looking plant. On closer inspection of my "Habenaria medusae," there are still no buds forming, not even at the loose "head" of the inflorescence. It's interesting to see the differences between the spike on mine and yours. Yours is fairly bare, consisting mostly of the bare stem while mine is absolutely covered in "floral bracts" but no buds. Maybe that's a clue to the actual species I've got...
