I got this compact stonei that has only about 16-18 in leaf spread with small flowers, which is great for the space I have. Is this a compact form of the species or will the plant / flowers get bigger over time? Wanted to get the expert opinions.
Though I have not heard about a compact or small version of stonei, the rules of genetics allow for smaller than normal plants to exist.
Can you take a whole picture of the plant (and length of longest leaf and width flatten) as well as measure the flower dorsal sepal width/length, petal length and spike/inflorescence height from leaves to last flower stalk (not including flower)? I can compare it with the dimensions of the type flower. The comparative study can tell us if it is a normal flower on compact plant.
I think you’re right about the plant probably going to get bigger, the flowers seem small compared to the leaves too - so those may grow too. I got this in spike - but have been growing on East window with flourescent light overhead to supplement, humidity around 40 - 50%.That is beautiful. I think the plant will get larger. What are your conditions?
Great stonei and roth! I agree the Stonei might be larger on a subsequent flowering, the shipping and change in growing conditions while in spike may have affected this bloom. Is the roth from HOF?
