    Why do you say "wild collected"? Did you get that from the wild??

    yes. it is a plant collected from the wild. (This is in Venezuela). This was obtained when they were clearing some land. Usually in these operations, all the orchids are rescued and attached in other trees.

    Those blooms are beautiful. Also, it's good to hear that they try to rescue the orchids when clearing the land.
