This research aim is to do inventarization and conservation of the indegenous orchids from HRF. This research was arragned into two years, firstly: is inventarization by collecting samples, and the second years is to do conservation by tissue culture technique. Based on this research, the orchids have been collected from Harapan Rain Forest Jambi Province about 16 species. The species are dominated by Bulbophyllum, namely: Bulbophyllum Acutum, B. medusae, B. flavescence, B. sumatrana, Bulbophyllum sp1 and Bulbophyllum sp2. Only one orchid’s species that survive as an epiphyte and terresterial namely Gramatophyllum speciosumBl..
