It looks like a South African plant.

It would help if you could say where it was seen and what type of conditions it was growing in.

What a unique plant! I wonder if it can be grown as a houseplant?

I should have done a reverse image search! I'm never really thinking there will be an exact match to the inquiries here.

Perhaps we can get permission to add the image to our ATP database.

Kew has the same image with the caption:
