Monophyllaea horsfieldii

Photo by Anton Weber
Grown at Vienna Botanical Garden 

This genus produces a single leaf atop a long stalk.  Flowers are produced directly from the leaf.  Another photo, of Monophyllaea in nature, can be seen here.  Some species in this genus are even more peculiar than this one, as seen in Monophyllaea singularis.
