Two spikes this year. The plant is a monster now. Pretty disappointed with the flower count. The growth that only has 4 flowers would be 1.2 metres across. I was hoping I might get 6. I have never gotten more than 5 flowers on this clone.

You can't really get a feel for how big this plant is from those photos. You need to see it in person to appreciate how enormous it is. This photo gives you a better indication. It is surrounded by FS multi-florals (including my recent roth) that look like small seedlings in comparison. This plant is not for the windowsill. :)

Many years ago at my friends greenhouse, he had a Paph kolopakingii var topperi and it was huge with a leafspan of 6 feet across and the leaves were wide.

BTW nice collection
