    Default Uprooted tree full of unknown orchids and ferns

    while ascending a limestone hill we came across a massive tree uprooted by strong wind. The tree was full of unknown orchids and ferns.









    massive B.vagnatum among the ferns


    we found an unknown lithophyte orchid, its roots penetrated firmly into the limestone crack lines lying on bed of needle pines. It has very nice fragrance.

    nice pix, looks like lots of coelogyne and or pholidota on it.
    the purple flower should be a dendrobium, but which one?

    Thank you so much for sharing these photos. It makes those of us that live in cold northern regions understand where many of these beauties come from. Cudos!

    Though there are slight differences in the color patterns, the flowers closely resemble those of the Dendrobium anosmum. Were they fragrant?
