    Thanks Zainal for the pics of your trip to Sarawak.I was in Kucing sometime ago but did not have a chance to see orchids in situ. However the Sunday Open market was fascinating offering everything including jungle produce and orchids.

    Valentino, actually we need to look for certain places to find the orchids example at waterfall, foothill of mountains and of course jungle where there are very suitable habitat for the orchid to grow. I was very lucky because my brother is working there, he was the one that guided me to those area.For example on the way to Santubong Mountain I found many dendrobium crumenatum attached on the rain tree, I think Sarawak is endemic for this species. Immediately when I reached foothill of Santubong Mountain I can found Bromheadia finlaysoniana on the ground. I was unable to go for jungle tracking due to insufficient of time. When I travel further in rural area I saw many dendrobium secundum on the tree branches , sometimes you feel that you are in orchids heaven.

    WOW,
    That is awsome!! There is nothing like that here in Germany. Unfortunately I was not interested in orchids when I was traveling in Cambodia and other warm Asian countries so I never looked for orchids. I backpacked through the jungle for 6 months not even thinking about orchids. We were on the search or ruins and artifacts. I remember finding temples in the jungle with trees and other plant life growing out of them. Maybe I have some photos of orchids … I will have to look. I remember I took a trip to the largest orchid farm in Thailand, but didn’t go to see the orchids I went to see the baby tigers that we rescued…. Again great photos !!!

    ciao Valentino

    This is Dendrobium anosmum var. Sarawak. I found it in Rancan waterfall, under the canopy,initially the leaves doesn't replicate d. anosmum however after its bloom then I knew. Very interesting species so far had blooms twice under my care.
