    P1 to P2 Bulbo ovalifolium I'm very lucky to see them in flower though very small about 1 cm but very cute so many color variations among these species.
    P3 to P4 Ceratostylis species in buds the leaves very unique monopodial type.

    Very nice to see Bulbo situ shots, and that Ceratostylis looks interesting too, i wouldn't have guessed it as such.

    Comments about three of your pics ( of course I could just enthuse about all of the orchid ones ! ).
    198 is one of the Daturas - grown as a conservatory ornamental in Uk - i.e. in a heated greenouse struicture, or outside for the summer months in Southern England. It is said to be "poisonous in all of its parts " - an alkaloid I think. I had plants of it 5 foot (1.5m) high on my terrace, until I happened to mention the common name "Angels of Death" , and my wife panicked when small grandchildren visited us and I had to get rid of them - they were difficult to keep through the winter anyway - all heated greenhouse space is rapidly filled by orchids !
    The peach one is of course a relation - I have seen that here too, or one similar, but I was told that one was a hybrid.
    193 is so similar to our UK "Woody Nightshade" - Solanum dulcamara, that it must either be that or is a close relative - curiously enough another poisonous plant ( not setting up as a witch doctor are you Zain ? ).I think the alkaloid stuff is in the berries here - start off reddish and up as black, but that maybe after frost which you won't see !

    198 is the yellow bulbophyllum - I wonder if anyone can put a name to that ? I will put it on my wish list !

    I did go along that bit of coast - in fact around most of the coastline of peninsular Malaya as I think it used to be called - many years ago on a holiday tour, but I think I was not into looking for orchids in the wild at that time, or more probably it was only a year or so after my marriage to my second and present wife - no we still only have one in UK - the first marriage ended before the second began (!) and I did not have eyes for a lot that I saw. Would like to do that again now - we have been married for 30 years - so could spend more time looking at the scenery and plants if I did.

    I agree with you if my friend didn't told me I wouldn't know very strange presentation, thanks Ron.

    Geoff thank you very much for the info I didnt know that it's poisoning plants in fact I already asked my friend to grow for me, I love the smell from the new opening flowers so nice and fresh occasionally intoxicated, huge flower like trumpet and different color make it the atmosphere cheerful. I wish somebody can give the ID of that bulbo, it's highland species very suitable to your country and might not bloom at lowland.
