Spathoglottis plicata - Common Spathaglottis, Lumbah Tikus

This plant is an orchid and is a tough weed that grows in hardy conditions. Some specie have white flowers. These were seen at the entrance to the Dairy Farm Nature Park and were of a lovely dark purple colour (For Alice). It was a good choice of an ornamental plant because it really beautifies the park and with so many in bloom, visitors to the park are made to feel so special upon seeing these flowers greeting them at the start of their park exploration.
