Most Sarcochilus (pronounced Sar-co-kyle-us) orchids are native to Australia; with only one species being found overseas. The most widely grown species (Sarcochilus hartmannii, S. fitzgeraldii and S. ceciliae) grow on rocks in the areas of New South Wales or Queensland. However all three of these species grow happily in pots in Melbourne shade houses.
