Aeschynanthus tricolor in situ
I met Aeschynanthus tricolor hanging freely on the tree at the riverside when I was at Poring Hot Spring in this August. This tourist spot is located at Ranau, Sabah, Malaysia. The entrance cost is 3RM for Malaysian and 15RM for foreigner visitors. I directly spoke in Bahasa Melayu to the ticket seller, asked for 3 tickects and he just wanted me to pay 3RM / each. :) How friendly he is !!! Anyway, I also grows Aeschynanthus tricolor over 2 years and it only blooms in early spring in Taiwan. But it seems that it blooms all year around in its habitat. Please refer to my previous post HERE for the flower closeup.
