    Default no id, philippines

    hi forum,
    another riddle for the experts out there.

    a friend of mine asked me to id it, so im helping out.
    this plant is from the philippines, produces plenty of tiny bright shiny yellow flowers with a little fuzzy lip.
    i couldnt get better pix coz of the size and the lip was turned upside down.

    i appreciate your help, here we go...

    and the winner is nelson!

    thanks for helping, i got closer to id it now, as for the plant itself i would say its a thrixspermum trichoglottis, but didnt come across a yellow flower, a new one???

    correction, just saw the yellow blooms on the trichoglottis, but spotted underneath the lip.

    hi forum,
    just an update, since i have better pix and this little cutie is with me now.
    so, i would settle for a thrixspermum trichoglottis and she stays in full bloom only for about 3 hours. her fragrance is very strong and rose like. she produces new blooms every 4 days or so.

    here is the latest pix,
