The NZ native orchids are not really the orchids of commerce. Most are relatively insignificant as regards their flowers, or are rather
difficult to maintain in cultivation.

some of the epiphytes are sometimes seen, but are not commonly in trade. I am not aware of anyone to maintains then for sale, although a number of nurseries sometimes have some to offer.

Most of the plants available have been collected from areas being cut over etc.

I am sorry but I cannot assist you further
