Our Coelogyne rochussenii also known as 'necklace' orchid bloomed early this week.
This beautiful species is usually found growing in cooler highland areas such as in Genting Highlands and Fraser's Hill. The flowers are sweetly scented and is very attractive especially in a large clump with hanging strands of garlands usually up to 60 flowers each stalk.
We have posted a video in HD (High Definition) here on You Tube.

Just completed another HD Video on an orchid blooming.
This time it is the Malaysian species, Phalaenopsis violacea
We wish to note with regret, the passing of a fellow orchidist of many years. He was the Founder of the Malaysian Orchid Society and have been its President from 1987 to 2003.
He was also leading the Orchid Society of Selangor and Federal Territory.
His passion for Malaysian Orchids from the early years even till yesterday was never ending and was also passionate in placing Malaysia in the World's Orchid Map. He was also extremely active when Malaysia (Shah Alam) hosted the 17th. WOC (World Orchid Conference) in April, 2002.

Yup, it's up. It took us four solid days to record the flowering of this Malaysian species.
That would be almost 100 hours non-stop interval video recording with the Panasonic HDC TM300 AVCHD camcorder in full 1080p HD.
We also believe that this is the first time anyone shot a video or a movie on this plant.

Part 7 today.
Kindly click on the respective parts to view accordingly. All music tracks are from Audio Swap and are pleasantly enjoyable. Hope you like it.
We will also add slide shows in future, for 11 other "best studied" species which we have the opportunity to do close observations for five years and more. That would mean five years of flowering, propagation, growth and characteristics cycles on record. These are all lesser known Orchid species of Malaysia.
Your comments and critique are most appreciated.
Thank you for dropping by.

Unlike to common lowland Cymbidium finlaysonianum, this species features heavy red and maroon colors and the flowers are somewhat smaller at sea level. This is from Gua Musang, Kelantan. The plant there have better showing with larger flowers and longer inflorescence stalk. We can conclude that it maybe due to the cooler weather there as compared with Klang's badly poluted air for the last 2 months.
Also shot a HD Video here.
Also to note:- We lost numerous species here in our home in Klang due to the heat and pollution.

Again, we came across this magnificient plant (being the largest in the Calanthe family) flowering profusely. It was around 18 degrees Celsius with the wind blowing above 6,000 feet above sea level.
Nope, the sample plant we took to grow lowland did not do well and did not flower at all. That was 5 years ago. It is also strange that yellow colored flowers such as the Spathoglottis aurea Lindl. and the Trichotosia ferox Bl. also did not flower.
