    Hi Robert,

    your second photo shows B. pendula, I think. And the third photo should be something different than B. speluncae.

    My photos from Sarawak: B. pendula, 2x B. speluncae.

    Peter

    PS:
    the photos of B. speluncae were taken inside Fairy Cave. B. pendula I saw at Tai Ton.

    Peter, they were from different area near Kuching.

    B.speluncae and B.pendula were common in Bau limestone hills. B.congesta was also found in another secluded spot near Bidi.

    Wow- what a lovely collection. I didn't know there were so many varieties.
    I have just one (of the "angel wing" type) which grows to approx 5ft tall & has lovely salmon coloured flowers, but I have no idea which variety it would be.

    yes being hairy like sizemorea, perhaps if there is a chance to cross them, will be interesting to see the outcome.

    Indeed there are many. It's very well recorded in some countries. Borneo, being mountainous and cut off by numerous inland rivers system making it inaccessible. More new species are being discovered in limestone and sandstone habitats.
