  1. Spiranthes colony found

  2. I don't know if its of interest, but I just found a large colony (hundreds at least) of the 'Nationally Vulnerable' Ladies tresses orchid Spiranthes on my land at Horopito (on the flanks of Ruapehu). They are growing in manuka/sedge/sphagnum bog at 750m altitude. While photographing them I discovered a fernbird nest too!

  3. Well done Andy. Pass on the info to your local DOC office. You can also record it via this website but I can't find the link at the moment

  4. Hi Andy - that is a great find. Use the Record a Plant link on the left hand side to add your observation to the national distribution database.
