yes, this is an terrestrial orchid called a Jewel Orchid, most likely Ludisia discolor. Grows natural in southeast Asia on the forest floor. There are a few different orchids called Jewel Orchids primarily grown for their foliage. When dew drops are on the leaves, the drop glisten like jewels.

Grow in the shade outdoors for the summer and indoors during the winter.
