Pterostylis curta is also known as the Australian greenhood. It is an easy to grow colony forming terrestrial orchid. This species has apple-green pitcher shaped flowers with white stripes and small windows in the “hood”. The reddish lip is hinged and pivots within the flower. Each rosette of leaves has a single flower in the autumn and winter. They come into growth in the autumn and are summer deciduous. It can be grown in a cold unheated greenhouse or conservatory but is also happy growing on a window sill. Each bulb can produce two or three new bulbs every year resulting in a rewarding clump of flowers.
