    Thanks Abiom, 8 years ago I was there I saw many barbatum growing on the trails especially at the summit when you follow from Asahan and not from Sagil. In fact at few locations more that 5 plants growing side by side. Hopefully still there and begin to proliferate for future.

    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.

    Yes Yew all from eco-park on Gunung Jerai, I feel so shock and happy, now I can see they really do some conservation of orchids although is not all but at least got something, I saw quite a number of catt on the tree most of them thrive very well (cold environtment), this is a good step in order to prevent the extinction of wild orchids.I hope for the future the NGO /goverment will take seriously for the conservation of wild orchids in G.Jerai.Thanks to the Forest Depart. and NGO for the participation.
