    That is beautiful, I do love dens they are so pretty, I even like them when theyre not in flower, I wonder if I will like them so much when all the leaves fall off for winter. I love the gentle orange in its throat and the idea it has a scent makes it perfect.

    Thanks Anne and Carrie for your comment, I think you can try den. species so lovely I like den densiflorum from India but refuse to bloom here due to high temperature, probably suitable for both of you.

    My guess this is a den singkawangense? But i think the singkawangense size bigger than this one. How's the best position for growing this formosae Encik? As mine (except the takahashii) always rotten from the top and really hard for the new growth to survive.

    I agree with you this one is Den singkawangense, so far I use fern roots that can maintain humidity for example you can take "Akar Pokok Langsuir" asplenidium nidus + charcoal at the bottom, usually it will work. Another technique just attach to tree bark definitely it will work provided you maintain the humidity.
