    hi margarita,
    i think you better wait for nelson here, since he has both, but i guess they look similar so you really have to wait for the bloom.
    just be prepared as either of em grow massive, they can reach over 100 pounds, that is over years of course.

    so, start your plans of a new greenhouse now, lol.

    Thanks, Ron! I wanted one soooooo much and I was so excited when I got it...now I will be waiting for a bloom to see what it is I guess (hope it blooms soon...) It will grow outside and I hope will be happy... I googled them both and they do look very similar but I found one picture this thing was HUGE!

    Can we have a photo of the whole plant? It looks too small to be G. wallissi or speciosum.

    Not really. I have not seen a speciosum or wallisii bloom that small. Maybe a few years more.

    The spike is more than 6 feet tall, and the stalk is more than that.
