    P1,P3,P4 Very healthy Dendrobium secundum on the forest floor only mother nature will determine their fate sooner or later.So sad nothing much can be done.
    P2 Oberonia species again the same thing under direct sun light soon will perish.

    sad indeed Zain, but you can help mother nature a bit, by placing those on the next trees if possible.

    P1 Miniature Eria species very small flowers white in color and so dense.
    P2 to P3 Dendrobium species with the cane may reach 1 to 2 meter with pendant habit, the flower arise from leaf axil maybe green/white color usually 2 to 3 per spike. The root of this species still green and huge.

    Thanks as always Zain for posting these photos with ID and comments. I am rather amazed at how healthy and nearly perfect looking are the Dendrobium secundum. AL

    AL for your information the surrounding environment night time very cold with relative humidity high until I can see moss growing and covered the tree trunks and branches however during day time so hot maybe this is the factor than can contribute healthy looking Den some more the base of dendrobium slightly higher from the forest floor.

    Many years ago - long before CITES was thought of - I bought a copy of Robert Dresslers book "A Field Guide to the Orchids of Costa Rica and Panama" - published in fact in 1972...somewhere in it, and repeated in the 1993 edition I now have , is the advice that when you find an orchid lying on the ground, it has fallen from a tree - due to a storm , a fight between monkeys , a branch rotting, or whatever ; you can always pick that up with an absolutely clear conscience - its going to die there. The conditions are all wrong - that why that species is not actually growing on the ground. That advice is very helpful to me, and maybe others...

    Alas, that advice does not take into account the Rules and regulations of the modern world. I have had my knuckles rapped, and been fined ( a whole one US$) for having a couple of such things in my rucsac when walking out of a National Park in the Far East . It's not illegal to pick them up and look at them - it's carrying them through the gate... in the same park, I saw Paphs and also Cymbidiums dug up by the Rangers and used as bedding plants around the Park headquarters, then put on the compost heap when the flowering was over. I almost literally wept at that.

    And if I got them through the gate undetected , in my innocence, then it's illegal to export them without a permit ; it's quite legal for locals to dig them up and stand at the side of the road selling them , or for them to be bought and sold in the markets , presumably as long as no-one kbows they came from a National Park. They do grow elsewhere !

    It's illegal to import them into the EU ( or no doubt USA ) without another permit ; illegal at least in my case here in UK to import any plants without a phyto-sanitary Certificate issued by an Authority approved of by the EU, and they have never approved of any Authority at all in some orchid countries ; and finally it is illegal to import any plant material into the UK without going through the PEACH ( Plant import/export regulations ) for which one needs to be an approved and registered trader....

    Fortunately my sponge bag does not know about any of this ... ( joke ? )
