    Zainal, why it's difficult to grow? This February, I saw few plants growing in the forest, in the South Thailand, Khao-Sok area. Is on your place to humid for them?

    For your information I was told the origin of this plant basically from Northern part of Malaysia to Thailand at one time many senior friends were told me they can easily found this plants in Kedah now only leaving us sweet memories hardly to fine even one due to massive logging and deforestation.My area the humidity is relatively between 50 to 60% probably that was the reason, when I went to Sarawak I can easily found moss in majority of the villages here not that much thanks Mietek.

    I too have heard that this can be found in Kedah but I've never seen them in the wild.However I've found that they are hard to grow here, Mine has already died.
