Australian Native Orchids. Native orchids range from the spectacular epiphytic (growing on trees) and lithophytic (growing on rocks) species of the tropical jungles and warmer areas of Australia, to the intricately subtle terrestrial (growing in the ground) species found throughout the dry eucalypts forests throughout the continent.
Gymea Lilies - Doryanthes excelsa. Everything about the Gymea lily (Doryanthes excelsa) is larger than life. The bold foliage can reach over four metres in height and some majestic flower stems can reach over ten metres tall.
Sarracenea, the pitcher plant, is a carnivorous species of plant. It is a herbaceous perennial with an underground rhizome and tubular shaped leaves. Sarracenea trap insects by luring them with nectar into the pitchers, where they encounter the slippery liquid. Unable to escape, they drown and are digested, providing food for the plant.
Sarracenea are a relatively easy to grow carnivorous plant. They like a moist to wet soil, and dislike drying out. They prefer a nutrient free soil, such as peat moss mixed with coarse sand or perlite. They should only be watered with distilled water or rainwater, as tap or bore water can burn them. They like a sunny position while actively growing through the warmer months. They need a peroid of dormancy in winter, when watering and light intensity should be reduced.
Sarracenea hybridise readily, making classification difficult.
