We have visited this small colony every time we visit Mt Kinabalu and we were pleasantly surprised to see flowering sized plants as most of the plants had been stolen by orchid thieves when we last visited 2 years before. It is always a magic site to Paphs in flower in the wild.

We saw two blooming plants of Paphiopedilum javanicum var. virens - about 10 meters away from each other, both growing in deep shade. Quite impressive seeing these guys in the wild.

Photographed beside a trail, near the headquarteres of Mt Kinabalu National Park.

We were so lucky to see this species in flower. The area had been heavily poached and there was evidence of plants having been dug up but these were flowering beautifully. Unfortunately they were gone when we went looking for them on our 2009 trip. I just hope they are still alive somewhere.

Having the foot in this photo gives you some idea of the size of the plant.
