    Thanks Angel appreciate it as you said now I begin to collect different varieties of Aeredis I also fall in love of this magnificent species, hot season lately inducing most of my Aeredis in spikes wait coming July and August for show time.

    Very interesting the plant character almost similar like Oncidium species but definitely is not oncidium I saw this species too when I was in Mount Ophir ( Gunung Ledang) a couple of years ago.ID is welcome.

    Photos like these really help when determining what type of environment a particular orchid needs..... They show the lighting conditions particularly..... with the overhanging branches, you can see the amount of light that gets through. THANKS!

    2 days back I saw Cymbedium species growing very well and established on the palm date in Kelantan I came very close and noted this is Cymbdium bicolor I was surprised that it has very beautiful small flowers dangling in between their leaves.The roots attached very strong to the surrounding medium.

    Just about 50 meter from the above plant I saw another interesting plants like catacetum in shape but it could be Malaxis/Liparis species having small tiniest flowers more than 100 right now carrying many immature buds.

    I had difficulty to classify this Phalaenopsis like species relatively huge plant and maybe small flower personally I never seen this plant in bloom in the wild. The seed pod relatively small and long.

    Photo 1 and 2 this purplish color could be renantera or Malleola species difficult at this young age to identify him unless got spike. Another seedling could be belong to the above photos.
