    yeah dats what im thinking about where to find it... anyway jojo i think you can probably you can make your own by hybriding your own... im sure you have alot of sources who can help you germinate seeds... i know mr. jun can help you with that... i have one cattleya still in the process of maturing its seed pod... planning to name it after my mom ( sucha mama's boi) 2nd one which is a phal. i guess ill name it for myself... since i like novelty type... to be registered in rhs if im not mistaken ur required to pay a small amount of fee... but i heard theres lots of paperworks to do that!

    Ron, congratulation. I hope it's not the last new species from Leyte or Samar.

    Hahahaha! Who knows I might find one growing and clinging to the eaves of some tall, concrete building in Makati. An undiscovered orchid specie that has mutated and acclimatized itself. That'll be a first ever to find one that is endemic and growing naturally in the concrete jungle of Manila amidst the heat and city pollution?

    Maybe a concrete sculpture of an orchid will do? LOL! LOL!

    Definitely not the last .... there is still a lot of undiscovered areas out here in the Philippine forests. In Mindanao for example there are still a lot of places where new species orchids are possible .... although risky because these are rebel territories and not safe to go an explore into.

    yes, there is always something new to find, even at areas which are well known.

    Indeed, new species are still being found even on places that are already well-known. One such example, Dendrobium stricticalcarum, a species also described by myself and Jim, was originally found in a citrus plantation in Laguna on Luzon, of all places. Last year we found this in Leyte, thereby extending its known range.

    I wish more people get themselves involved with orchidology- I mean, we are already getting inundated by all these undescribed species, that we need as many help as we can get! Not to mention that I'm on a slump...

    Ron, the first time my plant flowered, the blooms looked washed-off indeed, colour-wise. But the past two flowerings have produced flowers identical in colouration to the wild plants.
