    Supposed to be a wild grower, but always one new growth per growth.
    I guess my conditions are poor.
    Happy with the flowers, though. :)

    Great flowers. Yes, this clone can clump and become HUGE. I've seen monster plants of this; but, I was never able to get mine to do the same. My greenhouse is probably too cool.

    I'm usually not that much of a fan of this kind of hybrid, but this one is really nice. You can see why it got an AM. I'd love to see a specimen plant of this in full flower.
