Terrestrial orchids

leeflea(7a)August 11, 2012

I have a stand of Cyprededium parviflorum. About 18 as of this past Spring. They are growing along the bank of a slowly moving spring with moss covered banks. How can I protect them from vandalism, insects, diseases, etc. I never tell exactly where they are as on old Master Gardener warned me not to due to people stealing them. '

Same with the Spirnthes I have growing. But they are more elusive than the cyps.

Any feedback please?
