    Default Grammatophyllum 'Elegans'

    I am really jumping into the deep end now.....and I need HELP! I have no idea what to do with this beauty. It's a big one....could someone tell me if the picture of the flower at the end is what it will look like? If you have bloomed one of these I'd love to see what yours looks like. Oh, this one has two new growths, one shows in the pic's I do believe.
    Thanks for looking....

    Water and feed like you do your phals but give it a bit more light. We grow ours right above our paphs and phals.

    Connie -- that one doesn't look to be for the faint-hearted (or the small of growing space ) Good luck. Bruce--as usual, yours is beautiful!
