    Default Grammatophyllum multiflorum var tigrinum

    hi folks,

    hi connie,

    let it grow and give her ton's of sun, i think it takes a couple of years to mature, but once they are ready, my goodness.......

    hi bruce,
    mine is still tiny with a spike of 80 cm? it has only 30 or so buds left from originally 50 or so.
    i've seen plants around here you would'nt believe,
    but hold on, i think i have pix from a resort nearby, and i still didnt pick the biggest, just for the foto's sake.
    would be also interesting how much they weigh when big like that....

    wow ron thats one monster gramm, as much as id like my gramm to be like that, i hope
    that it wont grow that big as i dont have enough room for it. maybe when it does
    grow that big i'll just divide and give away the bulbs.

    your right it can get bigger than this, i've seen photos from the web thats a lot bigger
    than that but i think thats a different specie.
