    All credit must go to the mother - good genes, good upbringing. Thanks Al.

    There is certainly no guarantee that a wild plant is not a hybrid. There are plenty of natural orchid hybrids, and cases of introgression beyond primary hybrids. The question would be is there anything else in the environment that could possible be the other parent and account for the differences from a typical Rhy gigantea. But this is such a variable species I doubt it is necessary to resort to hybridization as an explanation. I'd be interested to see a chromosome count though. It certainly is big and bold and beautiful.

    What I meant was that it is not a man-made hybrid or even from line breeding (by man). It could very well be a natural hybrid. Thanks for the comments and the interest.

    Well-said Yew. I think that was what was in the mind of the one who asked the question in the first place. You have a wonderful plant there. My rhynchostylis seems to take forever to grow. I bought a young plant the other year and has since grown only by two pairs of leaves. The roots are healthy and "fat" though.

    I have a few young plants just like that, very, very slow growers.

    My RLC Blue Grotto "Takagi" has only just sprouted its first new root since I bought this in October. It has done nothing else over the 4 months I have had it.

    My Sharry Baby, a large sized plant, delivered with the Blue Grotto in Oct. has only just started growing new roots too. Again, 4 months after getting it. Hoping for a new growth on it but I am not holding my breath!

    But nothing from this particular seller, out of New Baltimore, Michigan, has done squat. I am not buying from him again, ever. And the seller is a jerk on top of it all!

    Such vibrant colors. It's amazing! I'd love to see the whole plant.

    will try to take a picture showing the whole plant. I'm very busy with the new year preparations and receiving visitors and relatives.
