    It looks like a Schomburgkia - maybe a Schom lueddemannii . BTW Schomburgkia has also been classified as Myrmecophila. Take your pick.

    Definitely a Schomb, looks a little like an Undulata. I wish that they would quit messing with the names, it confuses us old people.

    First thought was undulata, which is one of the most common grown here but that little touch of yellow on the tip of the lip made me a bit doubtful.

    Yes a Schomburgkia of some kind. They get huge.

    So, the verdict is that this is a Schomburgkia. So could this be a undulata or lueddemannii?

    Thanks

    Since the owner of the farm is back in Singapore, I asked the owner of the farm for the identification of the plant. He told me its Schomburgkia lueddemanniana. Mystery solved.

    Probably should be Schomburgkia lueddemanii (one n and ends in ii) not lueddemanniana. Or Laelia lueddemanii for those who prefer the most recent classification. This one was never a Myrmecophila.
