The ground was soft and moist and littered with terrestrial herbs....
like Medinilla (an epiphyte on fallen branch) - M. clarkei ?
Platanthera angustata, a highland terrestrial orchid - we saw this everywhere but could not get a good flower to photograph.
This one I have absolutely no idea .... is the flower coming from those leaves or it that a saprophyte ?
This ginger with its characteristics stilt roots and erect yellow inflorescence is Geostachys densiflora. It is endemic to the Titiwangsa Range and is deemed vulnerable due to extensive developments.
.... its rather horticultural but alas, a cool grower.
Another cool growing ginger - Camptandra ovata
Hymenophyllum - the familiar filmy ferns of the elfian forest, draping the trunks.
Xiphopterella hieronymusii, a fern confined to montane forests in Peninsula Malaysia and Thailand. I have seen a similar lowland species in Leyte which I should have checked the spore patterns.
Many epiphytic orchids, but only 2 flowering :This one is Dilochia cantleyi, also confined to highlands....
And the charming Rhododendron malayanum. This was first described by William Jack from specimens collected in Sumatra - as to why it turned out not to be a "sumatranum" was not known. This widespread Vireya can also be found in the lowlands.
Still unsure what this can be ....
and its a lady !
