It seems you are showing some out of the world species.
Literally if one can't visit the place it is out side his or her world. Due to this group and people like you we are lucky that we can see these true pictures.

Thanks for the compliments sir.
But this plant is found in India in Andamans.
And it was taken in India only :)

Even planning to visit Andaman; though not impossible now is difficult and again finding this in bloom means less chances. Anyway TFS
