Ground Orchid

Spathoglottis plicata


Considered as "vulnerable" in Australia, however, i think this orchid is native to the Maldives as well. Mainly because this is the only orchid i have seen commonly in most of the islands. There are several more types grown in orchid farms for the resorts, but this is the only variety i have seen in rural islands...etc.
