Golden brush or or voodoo flame ginger is native to Borneo. It is one of 5 species in the genus, all endemic to the world’s third largest island.
Burbidgea is named after the tropical plant explorer, Frederick Burbidge, while schizocheila means “split lip”. Presumably this is a reference to how the flowers open, as one can see in various stages in today’s photograph. The original description of this species is from a horticultural magazine, so there was no obligation to explain the name: Burbidgea schizocheila in The Gardeners’ Chronicle.
Golden brush is sometimes cultivated as an indoor potted plant in temperate climates. In its favour are its size (not exceeding 60cm (2 ft.) in height) and twice-annual flowering (see, for example, the bloom times at the University of Connecticut’s Biodiversity Education & Research Greenhouses.
