    I am constantly blown away by the diversity of the people on this forum. We are literally from around the globe. I've been able to visit (virtually)so many wonderful places and meet so many beautiful people, and learn so much about the wonderful orchids from around the world, because of this forum. Zain, thank you so much for taking the time and effort to post these fantastic photos and for giving us a glimpse into a world that most of us will probably never be able to visit otherwise.

    Default question

    Hi Zainal,

    what a wonderful photos!

    My father asked me to gather information, who actually grows his own plants in his greenhouse here in Budapest/Hungary, and also a member of the Hungarian Orchid Society.

    So they are planning a trip with their orchid friends to Borneo in this March.

    Now they are looking for a guide person or the possibilities where and how to take a 6-8 day long orchid study tour to the wilderness.

    Did you have any guide where to look for the plants, or how did you get the information?

    Would you please share your experience from Borneo with us?

    Appreciate your answer, any info would help.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    Peter sorry for late reply. Actually I didn't used a tour guide, I went by my own with the whole family for holiday, than I took the opportunity to buy some orchids from nursery which provide wild orchid species around 1000 meter above sea level along the way to Mount Kinabalu. In this nursery you can get if you are very lucky: paph rothchildianum, dayanum,virens, volunteanum and sometimes natural hybrids. Variety of bulbophyllums and dendrobiums eria and exotic plants.
    I got the information from my friend, from west part of Malaysia Pahang Cameroon Highland, whose working as tour guide for wild orchid in West Malaysia. Right now he still with the expedition together with the foreigner to see wild orchids in the jungle west Malaysia. If you need his contact number I will PM you.
