    Hi, I think it is a physiological dissorder? It is exactly the same as the foliage on the right of it Which I think is Teasel? Sometimes a plant will grow without the ability to produce chlorophyl? Its a possible, I was looking at the serrated leaf form on both plants?

    You uncouth lot ;) .... MikeD and I will stick together in our appreciation of beauty and all things horticultural. Roscoea cauteyloides are actually quite difficult to find but they do tend to grow near orchids so well spotted Mike.

    I went down to the Orchid field again today and the little white plant was laying over on its side. Not sure if someone has not trod on it. :(

    But lots and lots of orchids there (y)
