    Despite the strange weather pattern in Borneo (dry season became wet season caused by global warming created by Humans), my orchids in my mom's garden are blooming. Most of them have very tiny flowers (less than 2cm across). Any of you can identify those orchids from Borneo?

    Really tiny flowers indeed!! Some of the pictures seem a bit soft.

    As for the ID, perhaps choy can help. I'm sure he knows folks who can rattle off their names easily.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?
