An Orchid You Can’t Buy or Grow

Question

I like the Flying Duck orchid.  It is truly a beautiful plant.  Where can I buy one?

Answer

The Flying Duck orchid or Caleana major is an unusual and unique flower.  Unfortunately, despite many attempts, no one has been able to cultivate it, so there is no supplier able to sell it.

It is a protected plant and it is illegal to remove it from the bush.  See the November Photo Competition 2013 for more details
