Dilochia cantleyi

Montane Species

This is one montane species that would not flower at lowland. Ever.
This in-situ shot was captured last week in Genting Highlands and was flowering profusely. Our collected species from Gunong Stong, Kelantan, have not flowered for the last ten years although new plants were produced. The entire clump is healthy and getting larger but it did not flower at all.
This 'Dendrobium' look alike could be hybridized with other genus to produce some good flowers and was wondering anyone did it although someone did suggest doing so.

Another lovely Malaysian species and could be fast dissapearing due to heavy logging.
