Habit : Collected from wild.


I cannot make out the size of whole plant.

And obviously it is not good to collect from wild. 

Yes, I agree … I collect it when I find them on the ground on a fallen branch or left by lumberjaks.

Leaves are somehow not normal, but cant think of any other option but Gastrochilus acutifolius.


Thank you … Leaves slightly wilted.

Leaves are shorter than expected and placed distantly, they were expected to be placed closer.

I have seen acutiolius in wild in Pokhara and Uttarakhand, leaves were certainly different from your plant.
But anyways, dont see any other option right now.


Yes, according to the phenology also it should be the same.
