    In nature they grow like wildfire, its easy to see why they don't like being crammed in a pot. I can hear them, Let me free, let my roots feel the breeze, the sunlight and the rain. So refreshing to witness, you are very fortunate.

    Thank you Zainal for sharing your experiences with us. I felt I was there with you.
    Beautiful natural setting. How I wish this is replicated in our surroundings.

    P1 I do believe this is Bulbo sumatranum since this area is endemic of this species, growing more than 50 feet from the ground, I also noticed the pseudobulb shrink due to long dry season in this area.
    P2 Seedling of Cymbidium dayanum which also endemic to this area too.
    P3 I think group of Aeredis cling on the branch again to high cant focus properly.
    P4 This group of wil orchids even higher from previous photo consists of Bulbo species, Aeredis and maybe dendrobium.

    P1 Wow again another miniature of Bulbophyllum growing on the branch alots more than 100 pseudobulbs, emm, emm to high cant see properly, I found in this aea more then 5 species of Bulbo.
    P2 to P4 this is very strange orchids initially I thought was paph lowii and then I noticed old black spikes, I dont know what it is in fact I never seen this species before.

    Those plants you thought were Paph lowii - do you think they are also paph plants? Very interested to know.
