    Welcome Temmy. You live in an island with a staggering degree of orchid diversity and home of Paphiopedilum rothschildianum.

    Welcome! We'd love to see pictures of some that you have seen. Are you growing them or just looking in the forest?

    Perhaps it was Rhynchostylis gigantea. It grows in your area.

    Welcome to the forum. I've always wanted to visit Kalimantan but have only got as far as Papua New Guinea. It's a very nice part of the world, especially if you like plants. Are you in the highlands or coastal lowlands?
