Renanthera monachica is endemic to the Philippine islands of Luzon and Mindanao, and probably smaller islands as well. It is an epiphyte at altitudes below 1700 feet. The plant isn’t too large, the stems are usually less than 1 meter long. Leaves are thick and stiff, and have a purplish tinge, up to 6 inches long and 1/3 inch wide. The arching and branched inflorescence has up to 50 long lasting flowers each about 1 ¼ inch across.

My own plant is mounted, and this is its first rebloom. It is still quite tiny, about a foot long.
