good colour.
Its only a baby....................
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.

Then the flowers are ... about 20something cm?
A stunning and beautiful spike - so evenly placed flowers. Very nice!

Lovely sight....and if you have enough space in your greenhouse it's definitely worth to grow.

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!!
