How lovely, to be able to get photos in the wild.
Pseudovanilla foliata, sure has long stems and lovely blooms.

Very interesting. I was able to buy a few Australian terrestrials from Dr Beyrle in Bavaria, unable to get them in the US or heaven forbid Australia.

Just beautiful! Did you take these photos?

I love seeing orchids growing naturally.

Must plead guilty to never taking any photos. Got frustrated a few years ago when driving around England doing the touristy thing and looking for orchids here and there and of course finding none.
There are probably many orchids in other parts of the world described as a leafless saprophytes which cannot be cultivated
