The home of Phalaenopsis corningiana (orchid) is gone forever!!!

The home of rare orchid, Phalaenopsis corningiana is now become the new home of palm tree from Africa. I am feeling sad to see this. The foreground was the freshwater swamp & background was used to be hill Kerangas forest. My playground is gone, one by one....replacing by the oil palm slowly.

The link below is to my old page which got the photos of that habitat of Phalaenopsis corningiana before it is gone.....


The remaining forest is waiting to be cleared by humans. :-(

Bulbo. orchid.
