Perched on a tree near the KSTDC restaurant was this Orchid plant in bloom. Query to Prejith on identification of this wild orchid led to the name Diplocentrum Recurvum.
This epiphytic Orchid is endemic to Wayanad and Idukki districts of Kerala, Karnataka, and Coimbatore region of Tamil Nadu.
Flowers bloom on racemes in Orchid pink. The flowers are tiny with a prominent lip.
The leaves are leathery, thin, and curled.
