Plants : The herbarium
Rubicon has a rich array of different plant species, particularly orchids. Phil has identified over 220 indigenous plants, including 12 threatened species, and over 140 introduced plants.
We have created a herbarium of nearly all the plant species at Rubicon, except orchids that don't press well, to serve as a reference collection.
Generally, we photograph, GPS, press and dry each specimen before glueing it to A3 card that labels each specimen.
Here are our 18 volumes of pressed plants.
