    Your "second one" which you don't recognise is not a Phillipines orchid - its a long way from home in Brazil, probably . Its Brassia ( perhaps) caudatum. I say perhaps, because a lot of hybrids have been made in these South Amefrican spider orchids, and gthey are difficult to tell apart without the label as a guide.

    Yes Geoff. I mentioned it was imported in message #12 of this thread. I just wasn't sure from where. Thanks for the input.

    They are still expensive when you buy them at trade fairs. Maybe because of the demand and reputation of the waling-waling. Though some native tribes in the hinterlands will still give them to friends for free. Yes Medel, species orchids establish themselves well here. On my granpa's farm in Cotabato province, near Mount Apo, species phalaenopsis with huge white and pink flowers grow on fruit trees. And he has big, old dend. anosmum with blooms cascading almost down to ground level.

    Yes angel. see, when our senators passed the bill this year declaring Euanthe sanderiana as one of the two official flower of the country, even the seedlings became so expensive. It's really more fun in the Philippines!

    Really? Well maybe the majority better settle for the other national flower, the sampaguita. I think one can still get a free cutting. Just snap it off the bush growing beside the road.

    How I wish Waling waling grows so fast and abundant like Sampaguita. Although it is expensive I managed to buy one. Well, the rarity of these plants enabled some of us to be more interested of having it; but there comes the price! I realized, having my orchids and years of caring them, they are so priceless! I mean, no money would worth the long time and hardships in caring them. So I don't wonder why they are more expensive than ordinary ornamental plants.

    Default Terrestrial Spathoglottis Orchids

    Similar to mine. I should have bought that yellow spath in the background.

    That is true Medel. Given the slow growth of orchids, the years it takes before they reach blooming age. And people in my place complain when their favorite Aranda is 185 pesos for a plant IN BLOOM! So you got your waling-waling? Congratulations! I already killed two of those and I don't have any intention to buy a third one just yet. If can do, attach your waling-waling to a live tree, a shady one. From what I've seen and heard, they like it better that way.

    I wonder what expensive means ? I would like to bet that the price would seem very cheap compared to what we have to pay in Europe !
