In Australia, there is an orchid (Rhizanthella gardneri) which grows entirely underground. It was discovered in 1928 by a farmer after he noticed a sweet smell coming from the ground. The discovery generated so much excitement that a wax model was toured around the British Isles.
For much of its life, an underground orchid exists in the soil as a small white rhizome (thickened underground stem). When it flowers, it remains hidden under leaf litter and soil close to the surface, its petals think and pink, its flower head a little larger than an Australian 50 cent coin.
All orchid species need a buddy, a particular soil fungus, for their seeds to germinate, and Rhizanthella must have its habitat to survive. Unfortunately, it's extremely difficult to just grow it in a pot.
The seeds of underground orchids, are like ball bearings and the fruits smell like the famous vanilla orchid of Mexico, whose seeds and pods add scent and flavour to everything from candles to ice cream. It is suspected the seeds of underground orchids via native animal excrement. In Western Australia, these animals are locally extinct. Without bandicoots and wallabies to transport seeds away from the parent plant, the natural cycle of renewal and establishment of new plants has been broken. Not good for the long-term survival of the two Western Australian Rhizanthella species.

MASKS OFF AMERICA!!!
So, I finally have enough people in my region who are trying to unite against the lockdown orders and mask mandates. Many of them did not realize what had been going on throughout Europe for the past few months that has now reached Canada and soon will reach Australia as of next weekend.
What I am referring to is the worldwide movement to end the coronavirus restrictions and reopen the global economy. I was fortunate enough to have watched this movement grow from its infancy into what it has become today.
I seek to help the people of America join this growing movement against tyranny and injustice by all means within my power, so I ask of you all to kindly spread the word about my new group on MeWe. Also, please feel free to join if you would like to share your experience in the fight to restore justice to the people! We need experienced activists in this fight from all regions to help encourage and positively motivate the members of this group as well.
So whether you have been fighting against the lockdowns and mandates in Europe, whether you are in Canada where the protests have only just begun, whether you are in Australia where they are scheduled to begin next week, or if you are in America where the people are still struggling to form group cohesion and you want to take part in this historic movement to reopen the global economy and remove the unlawful restrictions imposed by the crooked politicians: you are all welcome to jointhe group. Remember, as they said: we're all in this together! 😁 😁 😁
