    sorry, i've had to wipe the drool off the keyboard before I could type again.

    those Erias are amazing!!! The second Eria densa plant has got to be the most wonderfully grown plant in the world!!!

    thank you Nelson!

    Stunning! I love the 5th photo of the Eria densa, but my favorite is the Trichoglottis philippinensis. It has such an amazing color and your photo makes it jump out of the monitor on my computer. Great shots all!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Canon EOS400D (Rebel XTi), and macro lens EF 100mm. But like what I told my professor two months ago, its more of the guy behind the camera harharhar

    Nope, it is not a hybrid. Dendrobium sanderae has several varieties, and this is more properly named "Dendrobium sanderae var. major". I wonder whether there are sanderase from Leyte. Probably for you to find out, lol....There are some sanderae from Mindanao island, Dendrobium sanderae var surigaense. Now, that is a travesty, because most of the plants are found in Luzon, and suddenly there is a variety from Mindanao, just off the southern tip of Leyte!

    Do you think skipping is allowed in the geographical laws of botany?

    hi nelson,
    ah, very interesting! i also thought there is only the luzon species which was almost wiped out at the pinatubo outbreak, so i've read. the one i got here is the white version with a light green throat and the pedals appear more "wavy" like catt's.

    hmm, im not so familar with our laws here, for flights you would need a permit (officially), but i know that we are getting plants from the luzon area (also baguio) probably by bus. if i meet my orchid lady downtown next time, i will ask her, how its done.
