This is a discussion on My trip to Borneo within the The Jungle forums, part of the Land Plants category; very nice report of your trip to Borneo. Thanks for sharing so many nice photos. ...
very nice report of your trip to Borneo. Thanks for sharing so many nice photos.
I have also climbed Gunung Santubong. It was a heavy trip to the top.
for the cornu-cervi alliance: pantherina is outstanding and ver easy to differentiate from other species of the genus. I believe, that in Sarawak occurs a natural hybrid between pantherina and lamelligera. The plants on the pictures, which you show above look like this.
here are some photos for comparison:
lamelligera, occurs in my opinion only in Sarawak, the normal cornu-cervi is not so common in Borneo.
cc from Borneo
and plants, which I believe to be natural hybrids between pantherina and lamelligera. I've only seen them in Sarawak:
Very interesting set of photos of pantherina. Great photography too.
Martin, thank you very much for the information, I feel much better at least you give me some information about the different of this species,I knew about that still not confidence enough to say that this is pantherina and that is lamelligera.The natural hybrids between this 2 species also very interesting I never thought until after you came out the beautiful set of photos.
What kind of orchid species did you get in Santubong Mountain?, I'm curious since I don't have opportunity to climb that mountain.
Endemic to Borneo very easy to grow unfortunately no fragrant.
Dendrobium hallieri the plant itself mimic like Dendrobium cruentum, the length of the pseudobulb is just about 7 inches to one foot in my hand. The petals is golden yellow in color with the labellum orange to red.
hi zain, love this dendro hallieri, fantastic shape and colors!
Beautiful Den hallieri. Is it the size of cruentum?
That is heaven to me. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos!
Vanda dearei native to Sarawak, story that I heard that this species almost extinct in the wild as a result due to over collected and deforestation, very strong fragrant.
