WOW! thank you so much to all of you specially to RON and NEYRA.
THIS ONE HAS YELLOW SHORT LIVED FLOWERS, COMING OUT FROM THE GREEN BRACTS,
THE FRUIT/POD LOOKS LIKE A WINGED BEAN.
THIS ORCHID HAS SMALL FLOWERS BUT THE LEAVES HAVE FINE "HAIRS" THAT GIVES THEM THE TEXTURE OF VELVET, AND GLISTEN AS THE LIGHT STRIKES ON THEM.
Very interesting thread, Jade. Do any of these have a fragrance? The tiny orange and yellow one looks like it will be striking in full bloom. The one with the green bracts is interesting looking; almost like a succulent.
The first group of pictures are Dendrobium nemorale a Philippines endemic.
oops, never saw this thread...
the pix before the last is thrixspermum, possibly elongatum or centipeda.
the "dangler" is trichoglottis, possibly latisepalum.
and the "quezon" labeled one i would say thelasis.
What a Great Idea! Thanks for sharing the pics and any info you have. Really looking forward to this.
