    Thanks everybody.

    My friend told me that this is a Phalaenopsis pallens but I doubt because of its lip is different.

    This plant is one of mixed plants of Phalaenopsis reichenbachiana, Phalaenopsis mariae, Phalaenopsis lueddemanniana, Phalaenopsis sanderiana and as well Phalaenopsis fasciata in one verdant location from our region.

    I collect them to grow more for my conservation efforts since most forests here in the Philippines are critically endangered due to deforestation and slash and burn agriculture and charcoaling. The area which it came from was deforested and loggers don't care of small plant growing but only for fine Dipterocarp timber.

    Derek, I hope you are not making an excuse for this thing we call poaching. It doesn't matter whether one is taking away "fine Dipterocarp timber" or an orchid- extraction is extraction. And by the number of species you have been flaunting that you gathered from the forest in the name of "conservation"- even though you don't have the means or the proper network to do so- it would appear as a consequence that no place in the Philippines is safe for plants, which is not so true. If you want to be commended (and I know that you do), please do the right thing.

    No excuses at all. My friend whose wife is a native of Bukidnon told me about the illegal activities within their ancestral domain. When charcoaling, cassava farming and pineapple was not yet popular or highly demanding, those ancestral domains were once a dense rainforest. They hunt wild jungle fowl, wild pigs, Philippine deer and some gather wild Chestnuts (Castanopsis sp.), wild raspberries, wild blueberries and Medinilla for food. Until large companies came through to give way developments in agriculture to indigenous people and established large scale farming for pineapples, rubber trees, cassava, and for elite business in charcoaling was introduced. If anybody visits Mindanao, many mountains were totally deforested not only in farming but also mining.

    As you said for orchid extraction, I don't collect or gather plants in public places such in the forest but I only buy them because most vendors (natives) would neglect them when their plants were not sold. As for plants from our farm, I sometimes collect them and propagate more but I don't sell them. I'm afraid they get disturbed or diminished because anytime the entire forested slopes will be used for farming in which I disagree of any consequence since I'm doing for reforestation efforts in a small area part of our 10 hectares farmland in Bukidnon. That is why, I'm collecting plants for personal conservation efforts from indigenous/endemic trees to small shrubs. I'm pursuing to develop my private herbarium and botanical garden at higher costs someday.

    Commendable as your vision is, my suggestion is for you to hook up with conservation groups; with the right number of people you can even collectively voice over your grievances. My point is that forest plants belong to the forest, and we should keep it that way as much as possible. If we should collect, then let's be discreet and not have it broadcasted. You said that you are doing this in the name of conservation. You are indeed saving valuable genetic resources here, but you aren't really conserving plants since you are not propagating them through seed in the first place, which ensures a wide genetic pool. This is the reason why plant conservationists do not use tissue culture techniques as a means to protect species.

    Again, try to find the right network of people if you really want to do meaningful conservation work with both short-term and long-term goals.
