Haenkelia argentea 

Gesneriad plant (Gesneriaceae) from Santubong & a nice looking fern growing next to it.

Didymocarpus sp. from sandstone cliff of Santubong.

Another Gesneraid plant.


  1. These Nepenthes and Gesneriads plants are really eye-catching. Just finished my first trip in Sabah, sorting with google information about the local plants, and then find your blog. :)

    Next year I may visit Sabah again and hopefully I will have my trip to Sarawak in short time.

  2. Do you happen to know what is the species of Gesneriad plant (Gesneriaceae) from Santubong? the one with fern growing next to it? Thanks!

  3. Sorry Hazlina, I do not know the name.....
