    Sarcochilus falcatus was photographed at Springbrook, south-east Queensland at the end of August [early Spring] in 2013. This plant was growing in the shade in subtropical rainforest about 3-4 m above the ground. The flowers are white even though the ones on the shady side may look to be cream-coloured or yellowish. I am not a good tree climber so the flowers were not accessible for a close-up

    There are three other plants in the photo, which have already finished blooming.

    Some smaller plants in the same area were lower down at around head height for close up images. These blooms were 2 cm across.
