    Default Rhyncostylis gigantea 'Peach'

    Here are the pictures of my Rhyncostylis gigantea 'Peach' in bloom, this is a first time bloomer. This cultivar is quite rare in India atleast.

    I found one of these as a baggie baby, (mine is still trying to recover from meeting me) and now I know what it will look like! How big are your leaves?? I was wondering what the span needed to be before it would be "adult" sized. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Connie I have experienced that giganteas are quite hardy, When I brought mine to India in Nov 2008, it had just one small root, the fleshy leaves hold on until new roots appear. Hope yours recovers soon and blooms the next year. The individual leaf is about 20 to 25 cms in length.

    Thanks Margo. I also have two small orange babies, I hope they are different in colour.

    Very unusual colour for a gigantea and really attractive. I'll try to look for one.
