    Trichotosia annulata, native to Borneo seldom seen in cultivation, I found this species in one of the nursery in Kuching capital of Sarawak.The beauty about this species is the flowers in cluster and lasting. Try to negotiate with the owner to get the cutting but the prize offered to me is MYR 500, so I just ignore it.Sorry the photos is not that clear.

    Bulbophyllum reticulatum native to Borneo can found this species in limestone, the beauty about this species is the flower is big as compare to the leaves. The specimen in my hand is not fully opened when in bloom.

    This dendrobium species endemic to Sarawak hence it's call Dendrobium sarawakense. It's has long pseudobulb more than 3 feet where the spike emerges from each node. Each spike consist about 3 to 10 flowers.Funny about the flower is the spur very long like a hook.The petal is plain green and I saw another variation got nice stripes.
