Location: Maredumilli, East Godavari district, Andhra Pradesh
Date: 18 June 2011, and earlier visits as well.

This place is in the Eastern Ghats. The forest type here is mostly moist deciduous with evergreen patches.
The plant looks similar to some species of Monstera, popular in horticulture and native to the new world - but I saw this plant growing wild; If it is indeed a Monstera, I'm not sure how it got there. That said, the forest out here has been tampered with on a massive scale - there are pine plantations over large areas... and rubber and coffee...

Thanks,
Sathya

If wild this can be Rhaphidophora laciniata. Regards, Shrikant.
