    yes, look like hoya to me too. It would be nice if it's flowering.

    I am hooked to both pitcher plants and native orchids there. Even though I just returned from Malaysia, I am hoping for another expedition to Borneo soon :-)
    I started off getting interested in pitcher plants too, but a year ago attracted by orchids.There are many interesting location/parks to see wild orchids, pitcher plants and rare flora and fauna.

    most welcome. The veitchiis are endemic to Borneo and only occur around 1000metre altitude.

    Thanks for sharing... Love the many coelogynes in situ and the nepenthes veitchii, which I think is the Bario form that creeps on the ground, not the green form...

    Wow the time must just disappear from any kind of reality while hiking and observing such rarities, keeping the plane waiting for return journey. I too love those nepenthes, also drooling, goes without saying for the orchids. Very well could be within the last photo documented examples of plants in nature for some species and hybrids as jungle tough love phases away. Hope the conservationists stay strong and the conservation force never weakens with dwindling support.

    Very special!!!!!!!!!1
