i am again posting this plant for any kind of identification.

I think Agapetes variegata (Roxb.) G.Don Family: Ericaceae.

From the photos, the plant appears to be Agapetes variegata.
The plant is an epiphyte and not parasitic on the host trees and develops a bulbous base with ageing.
This species is found in NE India in subtropical forests at 2000 to 2500 m alt. and is very attractive in flowering.
A volume on the family Ericaceae (eds. M.Sanjappa & ARK Sastry under Fl.of India series by the BSI) is under final stages of printing and will be come out soon. Pl contact Dr M Sanjappa, ex Director,BSI at
