Sorry Ron, I could never make myself do that.These very people were landless and extremely poor - people we refer to here as ibarat ayam, kais pagi makan pagi, kais petang makan petang (in the Malay language ) loosely translated ' Like the chickens , scratch the earth for your morning meal and scratch again for your evening meal '.
WOW! I'd sure love to get one of those! I love the outstreached hands with many fingers...But, space does not allow...Three feet is just too big for my small greenhouse. Sad...Betty :-(
Well, it is a tall species, but not a wide one.
Try Pecteilis radiata, which is like a miniature version to my mind and cooler growing
@Ron: I know you are just kidding. By the way I forgot to mention that in the same area growing together with susannae were Habenaria sumatrana, a very small plant, about 4 ins tall with an erect spike about a foot tall, bearing many pure white 1/2 in flowers and another terrestrial specie bearing droopy white flowers on an erect spike ( can't remember the name ). This area incidentally is in an open forest area with quite wide grass-covered patches, quite savanna-like.
You are correct Ron. I checked with my friend (we used to go camping,fishing and checking out orchids in the wild ) who was with me at the time we found sussanae, and he confirmed it was Geodorum citrinum. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
Ron got to be careful with you! Reading my mind across the Sulu Sea and the South China Sea - now that's quite a feat!!!!
