    Thanks Zain - its lovely for us temperate region growers to see orchid lands , and for those of us who have been fortunate to pay (all too short ) visits, to be reminded.
    I am just planning a special holiday for next year ( celebrating my 80th birthday - I already am 80 by Chinese standards)and hoping to go to Cambodia and Vietnam , but with my wife, who is not up to jungle walks now - she is older tha myself - so any orchids we see, perhaps in hotel gardens, botanic gardens, or from our week long cruise down the Mekong, will just be sheer bonus.

    My first place that I'm going to explore is Duyoh market 1 km before Serikin, I feel so shock none of the vendors selling any orchids at all what I see are fresh vegetables and fruits only.In year 2000, 2003 and 2007 plenty of wild orchids here now noting no orchids even the common one in this market. I think it's a bad sign maybe the beautiful orchids already perished in the wild.Then on the way back I dropped to the nearest river and look for something and found
    P1-P3 Seedling of Eria species growing in abundant on the tree trunk.
    P4 Dendrobum species on fallen branch

    P1 this fine Dendrobum have a small pseudobulb just about 2 to 5 cm in diameter with the flowers arise from the stem which is very small and I think white cream in color, personally I dont know this species.
    P2 Bulbophyllum species growing very high from the ground most probably no pseudobulb in huge clump.
    P3 Again another species most probably ? Eria the morphlogy similar like Oncidium the flowers are very small will show... later
    P4 Mature Eria in huge colony at the middle of the tree.

    P1 Flikengeria species on the forest floor with big pseudobuld and small keiki growing on the stem.
    P2 to P4 Miniature Bulbo species growing on fallen tree like a weed, another 1 to 2 years it's will vanish due to mother nature.

    P1 Taken from another angle
    P2 to P3 Maybe the previous species now having multiple spikes can see the buds yellow/white in color from a distance.
    P4 Maybe similar species carried out the spike with relatively bigger flowers.
