    Great color and form. I must tell you Yew that after much growth my Renanthera Twin Star is spiking. It took three years, but its finally happening. The Renanthera I have is a handsome orchid even when not in bloom. Are all Renanthera's so good loooking? AL

    I never gave it much thought but I do agree that the dark green, glossy leaves look rather attractive..... until the plants lose their leaves in the lower part of the stem as they age.

    It looks like the Kalsom ha removed the yellow markings of TomThumb but I still think this is a gorgeous Renanthera.
    Well done Cattan

    Thanks Ed. Yes there is no trace of the Tom Thumb yellow nor its delightful spots, but it has passed on the smaller size of the plant and flowers. The brilliance of the red and its non fading qualities, flower count and free flowering qualities come from Kalsom. It is also more sun tolerant than other renantheras - I have seen some grown in full sun!
