    Lots of the Acronias have the heart-shaped leaves - I think they have real houseplant potential. There are several really big ones, but not all of them are quite as showy as titan!
    Thanks for looking!

    Always strikes me as odd when I see one of the large pleuros -- so many of the ones I typically see are mini's

    My thoughts too, Paul. This pleuro orchid is fantastic! I suppose it is still a cool growing orchid, Duane?
