    I noticed this species can produced young seedling from the seed pods especially when surrounding match . The plant growing very well on the Rambutan tree, few seedling attached on the dried sphagnum moss as you can see the photos below. Most probably got some microrhiza that helped germinating of this species.

    Thanks for your answer and the pictures!!! I am going to try this (well...I will use another tree not Rambutan). After I lost the flask, I think is worth the try. Thanks again!

    Rhynchostylis do not grow well in my farm. I have lost perhaps more than 50 plants over several years time.
    I don't know why. Most of the other plants seem to love the area.

    I do believe this plant is hot loving and your area little bit cool. For your information when I went to visit my friend in Cameron Highland this species was not in a good condition ( about 1300 feet from see level) . Probably high attitude and cool atmosphere making this species down.
