Yew Sung..you should! I would be more than happy to take you for a nice cuppa Ipoh White Coffee and pluck your brains for advice and info on orchids and yes, the trip to the nursery! Be warned though, the nursery has nice species orchids but is rather pricey usually. Its not often you get bargains like I did yest!
PS: Ive decided to visit the ATM and go back and buy the Gigantea..will post a pic and you guys can tell me if it was worth it
Its even worse for me jo, there are only about 6 in our whole country, and they all seem to be on the coast! thats about 3 hrs away!
Gavin, I can totally understand LOL, nice orchids you got there congrats !
The gigantea I saw were at a vendor's in the Cameron. The smallest with 1 ft long leaves was priced at MYR 399. The largest was a huge jungle-collected plant with 3 pairs of leaves, the biggest of which was 2 ft long by 8 in wide. It had a 2 ft long spike with about 20 flowers. The price, MYR 1,800.
Since Zainal has bloomed his in Melaka, it can't be that difficult in Ipoh. BTW the ones I saw were all mounted on fern root slabs.
Yew Sung, I couldnt "tahan" (resist in Malay), I bought the Gigantea and remounted it on a fern root slab..now its just abt waiting, watering, fertilising and waiting. RM90 +10 for the fern root...I reckon its a pretty good buy.
Congrats, Gavin. Envy you. RM 90 - that's a steal!
I felt quite bad paying only RM90..but a bargain is a bargain..
