Artikel ini memberi bukti betapa negeri tetangga malaysia sangat mencintai kekayaan alam negerinya, termasuk kekayaan floranya, Malaysia butuh waktu 5 tahun untuk berhasil mengembalikan habitat Vanda Hookeriana ke habitat aslinya, Namun Bengkulu butuh berapa tahun ya? Photo-photo di malaysia ini mirip sekali seperti keadaan di danau dendam tak sudah tempo dulu, Lihat saja Tanaman penyangganya yang banyak kita temui di Danau Dendam Tak Sudah, bedanya di danau Dendam Tak Sudah tak ada lagi anggrek pensil yang berbunga. Betapa indahnya bila suatu hari nanti Vanda Hookeriana (Anggrek pensil) berbunga lagi di tanah rejang seperti di negeri tetangga ini.

Orchid that hates getting wet

IT TOOK us 5 years of combing Kinta valley’s vast wetland before finally locating a wild and thriving Vanda Hookeriana colony. It’s like finding lost love. The feeling was exhilarating.

This colony is tucked on a large patch of board-leaf semi-aquatic plant. On first trip, our intrepid photographer had to wade for hours in murky swamp that’s infested with carnivourous snake-head fishes, locals call “toman”. These monstrous fishes can grow up to 4 feet and can swallow a cat at one go. Thanks to pointers from some villagers, nowadays we access this hidden spot via a bush path.

Don’t get it wrong. The board-like leaves do not belong to Vanda Hookeriana. They are just piggy-backs for Vanda H to perch on.

Why so long? The simple answer is, rampant poarching is taking its toll. A long time ago, Vanda H used to grow in abundance over the outbacks of Tanjung Tualang, Malim Nawar, Kampar, Belanja and Sungai Terap wetland regions. It was so common, back then locals called it “Kinta weed”.

Well, everything changed since Singapore declared it’s national flower in 15th April 1981.

Not many know that Singapore’s national flower Vanda Miss Joaquim has its origin tracing back to Malim Nawar wetland. Vanda Miss Joaquim is a natural hybrid between Vanda Teres which originated from Burma and Vanda Hookeriana. First discovered in the garden of Agnes Joaquim in 1893 in Singapore, it went on to beat 40 other flowers to lay claim for the national flower title.

After more than 100 years, today, the Vanda Miss J is loosing its lustre, a bane normally occuring on all hybrids, and rouge orchidists are always on the look out for fresh Hookeriana genes to cultivate and bring back the colour of Vanda Miss J.

Vanda H has spike-like leaves and lengthy aerial roots to get a good grip on its host.

Avid orchidists travel from all over the world to catch a glimpse of its rare beauty. Thriving in cluster of colony, Vanda H. need full blast of heaty sun as well as the dampness of wetland to propagate.

Local orchidists say Vanda H. hates to “get its feet wet”. How true. Despite the constant need for moisture, it prefers to perch on top of other aquatic plants to stay above the waterline.

Berita tentang Vanda Hookeriana

Sahabat Nusantara, photo di bawah ini adalah pemandangan alam di salah satu kawasan konservasi Vanda Hookeriana yang berhasil di recovery Malaysia, negeri jiran ini butuh waktu 5 tahun untuk mengembalikan kawasan konservasinya seperti dahulu kala, nah buat Bengkulu butuh berapa tahun yah? yang jelas sudah bertahun tahun berlalu sejak anggrek itu ditemukan kembali di DDTS, belum ada tanda-tanda yang menunjukkan hasil yang berarti kapan Vanda ini bisa seperti di Malaysia, bengkulu hanya mempromosikan anggrek ini terlihat indah di tepian danau DDTS, tapi kenyataannya anggrek ini tak pernah terlihat lagi oleh pengunjung apalagi untuk melihat bunganya, wisatawan tentu akan kecewa dengan promo ini, termasuk kami yang pulang jauh-jauh dari rantau, suatu pekerjaan rumah yang berat dan tantangan buat Propinsi Bengkulu, jangan hanya berpromosi di tulisan saja, tapi mana actionnya!-admin

Malaysia butuh waktu 5 tahun merecovery kawasan ini, tapi buat telaga DTTS di Bengkulu, kira-kira berapa tahun yah agar bisa tepiannya di penuhi bunga-bunga anggrek ini?

Jangan salah, daun-daun nan menghijau itu bukan milik anggrek pinsil (Vanda hookeriana), tapi hanya sebagai tanaman penyangga saja.

[3.jpg]
Perhatikan batang anggrek pinsil yang sangat ramping menumpang menyangga pada sejenis bunga bakung (Crisium Asiaticum). Tanaman penyangga anggrek ini masih banyak di temui di telaga DDTS, tapi anggreknya tak pernah lagi kelihatan di mata pengunjung.
