    not huge...just enough...but in a few years it will be a problem as temperature difference between the top and bottom of my biggers plants may be a trouble!

    This plant grows to a huge size. Used to be quite common in our Langkawi Islands (about 50 miles away from where i live) and I used to grow them together with the other natives of the Islands eg. Doritis pulcherrima, Den farmeri and Paph niveum.
