    I haven't got a chance to have a closer shot.

    My cellphone just lost its ability to function and it is near to junk.
    I just borrowed a digital camera from my aunt in my recent trip.

    I have visited my friend's orchid farm but I just noticed it blooms so I managed to take a shot.
    The plant is not mine but this is the place where I bought my specimen from my very good friend who owns an native orchid farm.

    I have shot several undescribed orchid species which I have not yet posted in this forum and yet I'm now working to describe each as new orchid species in the Philippines from Mindanao.

    Last night I met one of Phillip's nurses, who is from the Philippines. She's been here since 1993, but remembers orchids growing like weeds in her backyard, and still has many friends there who, she says, have taken to "putting them on these pieces of, like you say 'driftwood'" - and they grow like crazy. She didn't know the names of many, but she described a lot to me - some of which I've seen on various posts from y'all over the the Philippines. And she told me that the military stationed there (not her, but others she knows), are excepted from the CITES regulations. I don't know whether that's true still, but it's a fascinating fantasy, anyway!

    Thanks BD.

    The native orchid farm is about 5 hectares, portions of this area are rice fields.
    The background of the Dipodium paludosum were several species of Bulbophyllum, Dendrobium, Pinalia, Dendrochilum, Appendicula, Thrixspermum, Paphiopedilum, Phalaenopsis, Cymbidium, Flickingeria, Dipodium pictum, Renanthera storiei, Arachnis flos-aeris and others.

    My friend just advice me to plant more trees to support the coolness and humidity for growing orchids.
    Bryophytes just growing naturally and more orchid seedlings growing everywhere.

    I simply loved the place.
