The wild Phaius orchid is flowering

Keruak wetlands at left and back of
 Working at Zone B this morning, I noticed the wild orchid of the Phaius variety is starting to give out flowers.  The last time it produced pods, I did broadcast the spores and to my pleasant surprise have germinated.  There are at least a dozen of new seedlings seen around the main stand now.  I intend to move some of these new seedlings to other locations to study its adaptability and growing success.  This variety of the Phaius orchid seem to prefer  filtered light  and  wet ground with rotting organic biomass.
