    I'm not that sure seldom I can see the primary hybrid selling here in Malaysia but when I Google I can see a lot of primary hybrid with other species.

    Would like to share natural habitat of these species at the altitude of 700 meter from sea level. Compactly growing over the granite stone and ground floors with with relative humidity very high and less light reaching the plants.

    Hope you will get some idea of this beauties growing in the wild. I'm hoping no body will reach this area and they can propagate in nice manner in their natural habitat.

    That's neat to be able to see their natural habitat. Thank you for posting those photos Zain.
    Orchid Wiz says barbatum can grow from cool to warm. May I ask what you believe to be the average minimum temp there?

    Indeed Leigh base on my experience the temperature range between 20 to 23 degree C at night with the altitude 700 meter from Sea Level as the area were surrounded by mountains. The night temperature begin to fall after 12 midnight till early in the morning humidity so high here luckily no dangerous animal attack us when we were there.

    Another beauty Zain!

    Have you tried growing this one from the other areas that produce the different sizes and shapes? I wonder if they would eventually all look alike if you had them in your environment or stay different.

    Love the pictures from the jungle. The first picture does look very high humidity. Did you start to jungle trekking again?
