The Blotched Hyacinth Orchid - Dipodium punctatum is an orchid native to Australia. This leafless mycoheterotrophic (parisitizing underground fungi, notice that the plant isn’t green, as it doesn’t need chlorophyll) plant is often found in protected shady positions in dry forests or woodlands and can grow to 40–100 cm (16–39 in) in height.
