Hi, This is my very first post to this group, so I'ld like to show you something !! This photo was sent to me from my friend.

Note on the pachycaule plant behind that guy, it's our native rare plant, Impatiens mirabilis. This giant Impatiens grows as lithophyte on lime-stone cliff in deep tropical rainforest south of Thailand. Yes, they like high humid but good drainage substance.
