Wild orchid is not as beautiful as its offsprings -after a series of hybridizations were conducted. Its colors are not as vivid as hybrid orchid, its petal size is not as large as hybrid orchid, but sometime wild orchid has a unique character which makes it a potential parent for many future hybrid orchids.

I would like to express my special thanks to Loot Eksteen for his time in helping me to identify this orchid. With significant help from Loot, now we know that this is Dendrobium macrophyllum.

In workshop, I post a view under canopy of tropical rainforest -as I promised before. Not much to see there, just dominant green color of tree leaves, but at least you get the feeling of this humid environment. I turned around 360 degrees, and I saw this similar view –that is probably why people very easy to get loss in the forest. I picked the spot where more light penetrating to forest floor, so more things will be visible. This picture was capture at around noon. [I decided not to post this in the gallery, since I cannot maintain sharpness and details after I downsized this picture]
