The bamboo orchid is a species of orchid and the sole of the genus Arundina. This tropical Asiatic genus extends from India, Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, South China to Indonesia and across the Pacific Islands. It has been introduced in Puerto Rico, Costa Rica and Panama.

 

This is a terrestrial multi perennial orchid with reedy stems, forming into large clumps growing to a height between 70 cm and 2 m. The flowers are 5 to 8 cm, lilac / white with a purple lip. They bloom in summer and autumn. They are almost extinct in Singapore, but in Borneo, they grow abundantly in the rainforest.

Bamboo Orchid is a terrestrial orchid native to tropical and subtropical Asia.

 

The genus name "Arundina" is derived from the Greek word, "Arundo", in reference to the reed-like stems of the plant, while the specific epithet "graminifolius" comes from the Latin "gramineus" and "folius", which refer to the grass-like leaves.

The flower is no longer a mystery Thanks to Judy and Alfred

  

It’s a pretty flower but sadly I do not know its name though it might be a form of Orchid. I found it in a swampy area near the Kinabatangan River in Sabah Borneo. I would love it in my garden but it would not survive a Yorkshire winter.

 

THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT AND FOR TAKING THE TIME TO WRITE A COMMENT IT’S MUCH APPRECIATED AND SO MUCH MORE INTRESTING THAN JUST GIVING A FAVE

There is a tiny, tiny white spider sitting inside this bamboo orchid (Arundina graminifolia).

This is a species of orchid and the sole of the genus Arundina. Not native to brazil, but I am finding many of these here.

Location: Chemerong Waterfall,Hulu Terengganu.

 

Info: The bamboo orchid (Arundina graminifolia; syn. Arundina bambusifolia Lindl., Arundina speciosa Blume, Bletia graminifolia D.Don) is a species of orchid and the sole of the genus Arundina. This tropical Asiatic genus extends from India, Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, South China to Indonesia and across the Pacific Islands. It has been introduced in Puerto Rico, Costa Rica and Panama.

 

This orchid blooms in summer and autumn, showing rather open clusters of showy terminal flowers, ten at the most. They bloom in succession on the terminal racemes, which are 7 to 16 cm long. These flowers, 5 – 8 cm in diameter, are a rosy lilac and white disk with a purple lip. The bracts are wide triangular and surround the main stalk of the flower cluster. The occasional fertilized seed pods contain minute powdery seeds, and small plants often develop near the cane ends after flowering, and likely aid in propagation if allowed to reach the soil.

 

With only 200 of the plant to be recorded growing naturally in Singapore, the species is close to extinction there, largely caused by the destruction of its natural habitat, namely the rainforests and mangrove forests. The remaining plants, commonly called Tapah weeds, can be found in the secondary forests or at the forest fringes. It is however very common in road cuts and other disturbed areas in full sun in Sarawak, East Malaysia, where it often is the most common flowering plant to be seen along the roadsides. - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arundina_graminifolia

Chemerong Waterfall, a highest waterfall in terengganu. Located 100 km away from Kuala Terengganu, a thunders magnificently down a 305 m slope which offer yet untouched and diverse riches of nature and wildlife. Take a plunge and enjoy the tranquility of this green wilderness with lush green unspoiled pools.

 

With all the basic amenities at its base, the jungle trekking to the uphill offers an adventure not to be forgotten. In the beginning it is cemented and will take about one hour to reach the top of the waterfall. This full day excursion requires some level of fitness, comfortable loose clothing and good walking shoes are recommended. Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit! We also suggest that you take along a spare set of clothes to change into at the end of the walk. - www.heritageonestop.com.my/day_tour_chemerong_waterfall.htm
