    Default Grammatophyllum multiflorum var citrinum...

    too big for a posed shot, so here are two spikes amidst a thicket of Phalaenopsis stuartiana, Ascoglossum calopterum, Trichoglottis philippinensis, and Flickingeria scopa.

    You must have one BIG g'house to house one of those! What's the "wing" span on the foliage?

    Default I do not have a greenhouse.

    The biggest leaf is 25 inches long. The spike is 38 inches long.

    This Sunday I have a bit of time to pluck out one flower to photograph.

    Default flower cloeup for Diane

    The photo shows some dust. I am too lazy to wash, blot-dry, and take another batch. :-(

    Lovely flower, I adore that little bit of white on the lip. Great job with the picture - don't mind the dust a bit!

    I can't see any dust anywhere! And that is an outstanding close-up photo with excellent detail. Well done on both the plant and the photography!

    Default Beautiful plant! Any buds drop?

    After three years my grammatophyllum finally spiked! Four total. Today I noticed that some buds have turned yellow and dropped. I do live directly under the flight path of a major airport. Do you think plane exhaust could cause this drop? I am very upset that I may not get to see the flowers after all this time. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
