Before seeing the Orangutang this morning we visited the botanical section of Semenggoh and met Ms Ling Chea Yiing who is in charge of it.(she is next to a plant of Dimorphorchis lowii in the photo) This was a great opportunity to get a close look at some of the orchids we have been seeing high in trees. These included:
Grammatophyllum speciosum (the largest orchid in the world by mass) which we had seen at Mulu,
At the Herbarium the living collection was particularly well grown and gave another opportunity for our team of enthusiasts to get stuck in.
