An interesting plant. Very rare. May be a parasite.
ID please


I think it is Erythrorchis altissima (Orchidaceae)


Very interesting. It is indeed a member of Vanilloideae and most likely Erythrorchis altissima known from Northeast India. This is not a parasite.
Would be good to see flowering plants.


I found it is more close to Galeola sp


It could be Galeola or Erythrorchis.
Cant confirm without flowers.
