    Very nice -
    is the Spath affinis very different to grow than the plicata?
    saw some bulbs on sale on ebay and I am interested. my S plicata is about to bloom now.
    nice flowers / nice photos!
    do you have any images of the whole plant?

    Dainty and striking at the same time. I love the Spathogottis Plicata - It's really beautiful.

    Nice photos cxcanh, The plicata is still quite common in the wild in Malaysia but the affinis is getting rarer and they are also harder to grow in the lowlands.

    Hi all

    Just some more information for two above species:
    plicata as cattan said, it very common and it almost everywhere in Vietnam but affinis just common in some areas in Vietnam. affinis love wetlan area and you have to keep it in special condition. This season affinis cant see anything exept the spike and flower, all leaves are gone and plicata have leave all the time of the year.
