I was surfing Web, ran across Caladenias, beautiful. I would be interested in giving them a go. I have been successful with 3 out of 4 European terestials.
Does anyone have experience with them that they would share? A reparable suppliers would also be helpful. Many thanks

What an interesting bloom! After scurrying to Google to see what they are, I found this informative link: Pacific Bulb Society | Caladenia . It sounds like you will need to get some of the symbiotic fungus as well as the bulbs to be successful. Good luck, I hope you find someone who is already growing them who can give you a good start.

So these are Australian right? They will be very different to growing European ones.
People around here grow them but they are normally specialists in growing them. I have never tried so good luck!!!

But culture notes online should get you through it. Lots of light!!!
