    Hi,

    this species is known from China to SE-Asia, but not the Philippines. I'm quite happy to have an alien in my collection.

    Cheers!

    Cute little flowers. I take it this is one of those plants that can get quite large? (Looks like monopodial growth habit.)

    Walking past that plant, it would be easy to not notice the flower - except for that lip. Wowzer!
