Lovely I like our local clone very attractive one of our beautiful den in Malaysia.
Well put, Wade.Fortunately not all orchids succumb to clearing of land for development. Visitors to our highland resort in the Cameron highlands are amazed at the sight of fields of Arundina graminifoliagrowing by the road shoulders and hill sides that have been cleared of trees for building and upgrqading of roads. They thrive there in the open as they are able to get the full exposure to sunlight. Other sun-loving orchids especially Spathaglottis plicata, a few varieties of Coelogyne and Bulbophyllum; and even some Nepenthes are found growing in abundance right beside the Arundina. I have taken part in my younger days in Hash House runs (an adult version of 'Hares and Hounds') where beer flows as freely as sweat,and during one of these runs we had to run through literally acres of Habenaria sumatrana, trampling them down as we ran through the rubber estates where they were growing.In the wild I have only seen small patches of these scattered over a limited area. On the downside an area in Perlis, a neighbouring state, used to have plenty of Phal cornu-cervi but this area has been turned into cane fields and all the trees chopped down and there are no more cornu-cervi here. I guess there will always be conflict between development and preservation of the environment.
beautiful blooms, I have this den also, but it has been reluctant to bloom for me, grows great, getting ready to mount it to a tree in my yard
