Please help me to identify this epiphytic plant. The details is as follows
This is Aeschynanthus, but can’t tell the species. Pls Look in the local flora
The plant in the attached photo is ……………………..
Aeschynanthus radicans [Common name: Lipstick plant] is an epiphyte that grows in the angles of branches in the rain forest. As with all epiphytes, the lipstick plant does not live as a parasite on the tree, but takes its nourishment from fallen leaves and twigs that accumulate in the crevices of branches. It is native to the Malaysian peninsula. It is also a common garden and indoor plant used for decoration due its vibrant flower colour and glossy leaf .
In the first image, there we can see one orchid, may be Symbidium sps on the tree, on the land, a Pteridophyte – Angiopteris or Marattia sps,
A. sikkimensis if there is no other species
I think its Aeschynanthus micranthus. A. sikkimensis looks a bit different. Sending you pictures of both. See which one matches your picture best
There is one unidentified orchid on the last pic also. Upper most has a Cymbidium species along with one long leafed fern.
