    Hi Martin, yes I'll do it.
    Amey, go to Kerela to the Tiger Reserve. On the way to, with some piece of luck, you can see it.

    Ron, yes this Papilionanthe looks like e.g. arching Luisia or Cleisostoma and need a lot of sunshine. Unfortunately this winter in Germany is very cloudy and due the lack of sun, I waited since September for the flower. But now I'm lucky.
