    Default Arachnis and Medinilla

    During weekends, I went out to agricultural fairs, particularly fruits and ornamental plants... When I look around I saw these margnificent species and then I took photo on it and bought them home... unfortunately these plant wilt because I left it alone without my attention of care...

    These are native to the Philippine forest
    The 1st picture is the most, sweet fragrant Arachnis longicaulis from Nueva Viscaya,
    The 2nd picture is the spectacular unidentified Medinilla specie came from Quezon Province Mountains
    And the 3rd and 4th pictures are Dendrobium anosmum var. Parviflora from Davao, Mindanao. I called it Parviflora because it is the smallest Dendrobium anosmum variety I have ever seen. It is extremely rare. I do have some ordinary species and varieties but this one is different. A friend of mine gave me a cane, now the cane produces 3 plants, and this plant is slightly scented...

    Take a look at these magnificent species

    Thank you for the beautiful pictures. I really like the Medinilla. I am not familiar with that genus.
