Dear friends.
This is not a fruit - but still. I am curious about this plant. I
photographed it on the path down to the hanging bridge over the Kunti
river in Silent Valley Kerala on 28 August 2009. The second picture
shows the watery rock where it was growing.
Green greetings. And happy new Year.
Anandi

Thanks a lot for sharing this beautiful orchid.
This should be Arundina graminifolia.
Those rounded leaves in the second pic at the base dont belong to this plant.
Regards
Pankaj

Agree with Pankaj sir. First one is Arundina graminifolia (Common Name
- Bamboo orchid, from its appearance)

These small flowers were right next to them - but they do not seem to
be the ones with the rounded leaves ...
