    is a synonym of R. praemorsa. However, R. praemorsa is an earlier designation.

    I saw a vendor-friends' collection of praemorsa who has a garden in bulacan where the climate is very much warmer and they were doing very well. In fact the temperature was sweating hot when I was there and there appeared to be no cooling breeze at all. They have their praemorsas planted differently (or is it wierdly??) - on the ground but the planting medium are medium sized, smooth, dark, oval-shaped stones. The kind of stones that I see in the gravel stores. They dug a trench, filled it up and landscaped it with those stones and planted the praemorsas there.
    Jim Cootes' book states that R. praemorsa grows as an epiphyte at elevations to 500 meters, and the Tagyatay area is at most 2100 feet above sea level. That is 640 meters above sea level. My farm is perhaps 450-500 meters above sea level.

    I have seen photos of hybrid Dendrobium grown that way, in the ground, with special media. They bloom like crazy.
