Last few flowers

The last few flowers of a large Robiquetia spathulata hanging over a stream - just enough of them to make an identification.

The dangling inflorescence, up to 15cm long, may bear more than 50 flowers but they do not open at the same time, and each small flower has a short live of 1 or 2 days only, which is why this plant is not popularly cultured.
