For those of you approaching a recognition Tee such as 25 sorties- Red, 50-Green 75-Blue and the much prized 100 Black, it is our custom to allow you to order it in advance but it will only be presented to you on completion of the requisite number of runs.

On Route Botany

Orchid hot spots: Sandy part of the Crassula Path, Steenberg Plateau, bit between Junction Pool and the Mast just off the jeep track. The sandy bit of the Steenberg Plateau form top of Peck's Valley. The sandy tracks form Muizenberg Cave all the way to the where the stairs start up to Kalk Bay Peak and Tarturus cave.

 

Typical terrain: Sandy Soil with a seep running through. Orchids love water but will rot if the bulbs are submerged.  Often found where there is some form  wind protection.

 

Satyrium Flowers are pretty small, around 1,5cm or less, colours vary drastically from red and pick to fleshy yellow. Stems can be dark red or green.

The one we probably will see is green with fleshy to bright yellow flowers
