User's notes

Three pink Caladenia orchids growing close together, one plant with two open flowers and two plants with one open flower and one bud each. Tallest plant 14cm. Not sure if C. carnea or C. fuscata. Does multi-flowered indicate C. carnea?

Yep, the robust green stem and multi-flowered is a good indicator for carnea.
