I was up at Namtok Suan Hom a couple of weeks ago, it was soaking wet. In the secondary forest up there were a number of flowerings going on. More famous for the current land encroachment case that is going on up there at the moment, its was an eye opener to see the development in the area. Not so much for the resorts that are hitting the news but for the shear amount of cleared land for farming that was not apparent on my last visit two years ago. Anyway I digress!

Here are some of the flowerings I saw in the secondary bamboo/mixed evergreen forest up there, in August.

You have a parasitic Aeginetia indica (Orobanchaceae) on the first pictures. It feeds from the roots of grasses, often bamboo and become a nuisance in sugarcane fields. The last picture shows a Curcuma, but until the Flora of Thailand issue on gingers is published I do not dare to make an ID.
