    This particular one only grows to about 4 feet. I have a couple of more that get to about 8 feet. Also, I haven't forgotten about that thing that you want built Cin. I have been so freakin busy it's rediculous! My buisness partner and I just opened up a new office, so I have been swamped trying to tie up all of the loose ends and stuff. So I just wanted to let you know that I am not blowing you off or anything Cin.

    Thanks Cin! I'll deffinently keep you in mind. We haven't furnished the office yet, but we are working on it. Hopefully here in the next few weeks the office will be fully operational. Thanks everyone else I think the fish that you are thinking of Jason is a parrot fish. My main reason for really liking the blooms is because they look fake! With the colors and the texture of the flower bracts they almost look like they are plastic in real life.

    I love those, when traveling in tropical regions it's amazing how many varieties you can see. Never thought of trying to grow one because the humidity here is too low.
