thanks for all replies and yes, there are a lot of good and bad things here.
And the orchids have to live with the sometimes harsh conditions in the different seasons.
If anybody will be near in future I live 80km north of ChiangMai.
Thailand did a great job Corona-wise . I feel much safer here , compaed to the most western countries.
Have a nice Sunday. Werner
-habitat: best if they grow between steep rocks, hard to get, because the collectors are poor mountain people and they dont care about artificial propagation.
-climate in winter: for Europeans like a Russian high-pressure system in our summers . 30celsius during the day, 15c during the night , can be cooler, low humidity.
clearly the best season for tourists is November-January, still nice and green, later getting hotter and still very dry.
Very nice! I have acquired some Bellatulum crosses recently, am now looking out for species!
I love visiting that area, was convenient when living in Saigon. Mostly BKK and chiang Mai. The smoke is a challenge for me in springtime there, farmers burning. Oh and the police pulling me over on motorbike regularly in Chiang Mai. But there is a lot to explore up there around chiang dao.
