Spathoglottis pliata
There are now many stunning variations, hybrids, garden and show worthy plants of this now from Thailand where the species  grows wild as it does in most of SAsia . 

The newer ones include very dark purple, clear yellow, white assorted splashes of colour, blue and rainbow hues. 

Low growing ones with prostrate stems tall ones straight strong stems. 
All flower easily and all year in the tropics, the Sub-tropics only in the warm wet season but continue flowering until cooler weather kills the flower spike.

Grow in full light for best results, stronger more flowers. In the garden they take full sun, preferably very high humidity all year. 

They like open soil for best root development. Feed well in the growing season, slow release fertilisers or organic products, water often. 

Do very well in large pots.

These grow best at 10%C (50%F) and above, attractive mostly evergreen pleated leaves blackened and killed bellow this, plants can survive but plant never recovers, weakens and dies
