    Hi Hoa,

    I was checking them out this weekend and reached the same conclusion! I've settled for a couple of cute species Phals and a very blue primary hybrid from our favorite big leaf grower! Much more my size...

    I can tell most deffinently that, that plant is a type of schomburgkia. I'm not sure what type, but deffinently schomburkia. Maybe fimbriatta, or moyambe(sp?). I have collected 2 of almost every different type of schomburgkia, and that plant just says schomburgkia! The only real way you can tell though is to wait until it blooms! The more I look at that picture though, it says schomburgkia! Schomburgkias bloom out of the center of the leaves much like the old flower spike in the picture. I'll have to take a picture of one of my schombs so you can compare!

    Hi Aaron,

    I was thinking of this guy when I saw that you grow Schombs! Of course your previous avatar did give you away!

    Lisa was comfortable with the genus ID. I have a question though, I understand these guys can get huge. Yet this clearly isn't a young plant. Are some species larger than others?

    This is just a pic of one of my schombs so you could see the similarities. This picture is of Schomburgkia Exaltata.

    Yes, some species get huge, and others stay relatively small. I have a schomb splendida that is huge, as well as a brysiana, and tibicinis. I have another type of brysiana; brysiana 'Robert' which is relatively small. I'll have to post a picture of one of my larger tibicinis tonight. Don't get me wrong though; what the smaller schombs lack in overall size, they make up for in shear volume!
