Then the flowers are ... about 20something cm?The plant is bigger than the photo suggests. The flowering growth is more than a metre across. This plant takes up a hell of a lot of space in my glasshouse. So the flowers need to be nice to justify its place.
That is a monster. maybe mine is still a baby then. How many flowers do you get on a spike Ed?Lovely and well photographed blooms. Yes they do get very big. Mine is a very old one and has a leaf span of 63 inches -- takes up a lot of room in the greenhouse. I have it hung up and the leaves are so heavy that they just hang down. Hasn't flowered for a couple of years but should put on a good show when it does!!
