Not sure if this has been done already but it seems like a good idea to have a place to post our random pics of native plants.

 

It could be a good way to get some more action in the native plant forum and if it takes off we could get the thread pinned.

 

Anyway, here's one to get the ball rolling.

 

The Atherton nut, Athertonia diversifolia, a macadamia relative with a similar but slightly sweeter taste.

Notice the variation in the leaves hence the name 'diversifolia'.

That's a 5 cent coin by the way.

Nice one HD. I think your mystery Hibbertia might be Hibbertia vestita.

To keep up a bit of a native orchid theme, here is a photo of the world's smallest orchid, Bulbophyllum minutissimum. Each of the pseudobulbs are only a millimetre or two across. Will dig out some more native plant shots and post them here soon.

 

 

peace

Another native orchid - and another rather strange one at that. It just floats and rolls about in rainforest leaf litter drawing nutrients from the leaf litter through the tiny hairs on the rhizomes. Cheirostylis sp.

nice one tarenna (Tara?) I wonder if this plant has learned to use scrub turkey's to spread it around. I feel this might be the case.

A much more common native orchid - the nodding greenhood, Pterostylis nutans.

Absolutely - I have witnessed this on a number of occasions. Also Australian logrunners (a rainforest bird), Superb (and much less frequently Albert's) lyrebirds and other litter foraging birds.
