Exploring Flora Biotope of East Kalimantan Indonesia

Here’s some photos from an excursion by Hendri Salsa from East Kalamantan Indonesia.  This general region holds some of the most amazing plant life on earth for hobbyists.  Lots of suitable terrarium and aquarium plants.  These kinds of photos can bring inspiration for biotope builds or general aquarium builds by looking at nature and getting ideas.  Take a look at these amazing plants and biotope inspiration.  Who would love to build a betta biotope now?

Many plants that were found in this expedition are new and undescribed species, even possibly a new genus.  These endemic plants are being lost to palm oil plantations, logging, and development at an alarming rate.  This isn’t a “my grandkids will never see…” this is an “I will never see” situation.  Many places are being lost as we speak, with undescribed plants, and even animal species.
