    Default Renanthera matutina

    A large sized, hot growing vine-like epiphytic native of Thailand, Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Malaysia in lowland and mixed montane forests at elevations of 100 to 600 meters as a large to giant sized, hot growing pendulous epiphyte on tree branches in light to moderate shade with a long stem carrying many, distant, oblong or lorate, fleshy, unequally bilobed apically, conduplicate below into the clasping base, stiff leaves that flowers in the fall on an axillary, 2 3/4' to 3' [50 to 90 cm] long, paniculate, many flowered inflorescence with ovate, reflexed floral bracts.(From IOSPE)
    It does not mention the Philippines, but a lot of this plant can be found here, cultivated by people in the rural areas who have no idea that it is an orchid.


    Some creature must have found the floral parts delectable.
