    Default Rlc. Dream Trader 'Monster'

    Got this from a good friend before his passing a year or two back. He grew with lots of heat, way more than me. I wasn't sure what it would do here. Only 2 flowers, does carry 3 per spike easily but I think that will return.
    Currently measures 190mm across the flower & I think its still growing. Friend had it at 210mm one year (or more).

    It really is quite magnificent.
