Auyong's abode - part 1
These rat-tail orchids (Paraphalenopsis) line the nursery/home of the "Orchid King" Auyong Nang Yip (probably made famous in the West by Eric Hansen's book "Orchid Fever" although already famous in local circles)in Kuching, Sarawak. The place is 1 acre but has 50-60 thousand plants - by his estimation in Borneo Post dated July 2007. Actually,he has another nursery out of town, but we were rushing so we gave it a miss.
