    Default Help, ID this Schomburgkia

    This Schomburgkia (which I am guessing is a Species) grows almost wild on the old Mahogany trees on the island. I secured a plant and have it growing on a piece of driftwood. Very long spikes with 10- 15 very beautiful flowers.
    Anyone recognise it?

    This is an easy one. No longer called Schomburkgia. NOW, Myrmecophilia humboldtii.
