✿❀ CHARLIE ROBINO at Queensland Orchid International ❀✿
Hi all, thought this may interest you. My name is Charlie Robino. I live at Bramston Beach which is about 66ks south of Cairns. This in itself of coarse is in tropical North Queensland, [Gods Country], The interesting thing I’m showing you is the orchids growing in full sun and open to the elements. The main feature is the fact that these Dens. are growing just above the high water mark on bare rock. During the rough weather these orchids are saturated with salt to the point of being completely covered by the sea . Despite this they flourish. In the north we call them “King Orchids” I don’t know of this happening anywhere where else. Pardon the quality of the pics as I only keep a cheap camera on board. The name of the creek Is Coopers Creek, in case you want to Google it. Look for it on Google map just south of Bramston Beach. The village has only 120 residents and is the best well kept secret I know. Cheers Charlie Robino.
Lots around Etty Bay too, but high up in the trees almost on the beach.
Australian Native. Nindii was saved from fallen tree in nearby swamp. Fairly rare variety. It takes full sun. Flowers February. Cheers Charlie Robino
