    What an amazing specimen plant.. I'm going to allow some of my orchids to get big on their own and not split them too.

    Hi Connie thanks for sharing definitely very interesting as I can see in the wild the huge clump looks so nice but must be very careful as some of the roots very sharps and can injure your fingers because of that reason I'm bit reluctant to grow them in my garden would prefer for small rather than this gigantic species.

    More than 5 years old, this is my second plant, my first ended in disaster, the orchid died because rotting roots, i didnt noticed the pot was clogged up until it was too late ..last year there was a hot and dry spell here in north Malaysia and i noticed lots of tiger orchids at nurseries and private owned started to produce blooms ..including mine ..yes really awesome ..
