Thanks Zainal. Those photos of the barbatum/callosum on Gunung Jerai are fantastic. They bring back so many wonderful memories for me. Hopefully there are still a substantial number of them there. Development at the peak has to stop. I'm working with the Nature Society here to urge the authorities to control exploitation of place. 50 years ago there were sizeable colonies of Spathoglottis plicata, affinis (white) and the rare aurea. I understand both the affinis and aurea have disappeared completely. Keep those pictures safe, Zainal. Won't be long before they may be the only evidence that once Gunung Jerai was an orchid heaven.
P1 to P3 is monopodial plants which I never seen any flower spike growing like a weeds.
P4 ground orchid with succulent stem looks like paph leaves.
P1 to P2 previous species on different views.
P3 to p4 is Podochilous specie growing on the rock
P1 to P4 Apotasia species with white flowers now in buds is ground orchid may reach 4 to 5 feet.
P1 to P2 Arudinia species which is very small as compared to others highland in Mallaysia
P3 to P4 wild flowers white color very interesting
So much different as compared 5 years ago I so surprised so many orchids being attached to the tree such as Grammatophyllum species with long spikes and Bulbophyllum species
Are these pictures (95) from the eco-park on G Jerai?
