spathe of C. lingua from Mr Teo's farm

I went to Mr Teo's farm recently and saw a fibre tank full of C. lingua growing emersed in a mixture of soil and chicken poo.
I had seen C. lingua spathe in the nature previously when I visited Sarawak but the spathe was not opened yet then. Therefore I took the opportunity this time round to take photographs of the blooming C. lingua spathes I found in the farm.
My experience is that it is not easy to grow C. lingua emersed in my cultivation tank but look at these healthy specimens grown by Mr Teo in his farm exposed to the environment!
