    I have never seen a dwarf form of this plant. Doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I obtained my plants from vegetative cuttings, so I have no experience with growing them from flasks. Hence I don't know when they would bloom approximately from seedling size.

    However, last year I gave a cutting to YC, who took it to Kuala Lumpur. It was about 6 inches tall and it bloomed within a year.

    Thanks Nelson, I'll have to post a pic of the dwarf form as a plant and hopefully in flower soon.
