South African Weed Orchid. Disa bracteata

We are all aware this WEED is spreading rapidly. I recently visited the Grampians and was horrified to see a clump of these invaders in what I had assumed to be pristine bush.
On returning home I have contacted various agencies for more help.
The organizations whose job it is to remove weeds need to be made aware how rapidly this weed is speading.
I have looked at the map of Victoria showing all the observations for the State. It seems to me that not everyone is entering a sighting as an observation, I am also at fault here.
If you are doing observations for this project and you see one of these weeds please record it.
Thanks Ro.

Many Australian plants have not been photographed.


I have provided the above link so you can read the article about how citizen scientists can help by photographing Australian native plants.

As we move into winter and the weather gets colder it is difficult to find insects and some birds to photograph for iNaturalist.

Maybe the alternative is to photograph our native plants.

Many of our more colourful natives flower during winter and early spring.

According to the article some of the small plants and grasses are the ones that are overlooked.

Visit the Heathland and see what you can find and photograph.
