    Beautiful variety. Indian variety the flowers are smaller and spike is longer. My retusa bloomed with 3 spikes but was busy in work and could not take or post pictures.

    Awesome smell similar like local herb what do we call as "Kesum" Polygonum minus which we used for food additive and flavoring agent.

    Yes... this is from our country but I always noticed those from Indochina they bit reluctant to flower and the plant character also different. I have few plants below is from Myanmar very tough and big leaves similar like gigantea..Name:  1.jpg

    Thanks for the info and the comparison between the leaves of the Burmese, Thai and our local varieties. There used to be quite a lot of Rhy retusa in the Jitra area especially Perik, which is between Bukit Wang and Kuala Nerang. The leaves are very narrow and about 1 foot long. They are often found on the 'Bongor' (Lagerstroemia floribunda ) trees growing beside rivers and streams. The whole of the Perik area has now been turned into orchards and vegetable farms. I have not visited the area for some time and hope that the Bongor trees beside the rivers and streams have not been cut down. That would be a great pity. I have seen the disappearance of Phal cornu cervi from Padang Besar(habitat turned into sugar cane plantations; Aerides odorata from the Gunung Jerai area (habitat turned into housing areas); Paph niveum from the limestone hills of Kodoang and Langkawi Islands (over collecting); Ascocentrum miniatum and Habenaria carnea from Kaki Bukit ( over collectong) and Pectelis sussanae from Nami (development and farms).
