    Jordan, good luck looking forward your wild orchids in NZ's hoping some of them in blooms, watch out for wild animals and snakes in the bush. Zain.
    pfft...HAHAHAHA! thats funny zain, really is........the only wild animal-no not animals, animal, only one-is the possum...a huge pest here. no snakes either. our customs officers work VERY hard to stop any stray snakes etc entering our country, as we have no endemic species, therefore, any new ones will wreak massive destruction on the ecosystem.

    By the way, lovely pics there, they do seem to like those trees, allot of mounted ones in my chid books are on mangosteen wood.

    Wow ,that great only possum, does this animal bite?
    Mangosteen wood is a good for orchids maybe the uneven barks provided some moisture and natural fertilizer.

    Today I took the opportunity to visit my son, on the way back I just dropped by to the nearest waterfall.
    P1 Suddenly the flying lizard landing on the tree in front of me took a shots immediately, luckily this guy wasn't ran away. You can see this creatures mainly in the tropical rain forest.
    P2 to P3 The view of crystal clear waterfall make me hypnotized and calmed for short awhile with the wind slowly blowing toward me.
    P4 I was dazed with this new species never seen before concentrating on the tree branch and trunk. Very small plants and small flowers too. Maybe Agastrophyllum species.
