    Nice choice the Rhyn. gigantea .... I Love these plants too because of their stunning colors and specially their strong fragrance. Now if I could get my hands on some good (and not too expensive) clones here in Manila.

    Thank you, Zainal, Mazlan, Jojo.

    @Zainal, I have the short ones, too, they're younger plant size, as they grow older, the spikes will be longer.
    You may pick up those well-formed 1st bloom size (big flower, nice color, dense foxtail, etc.), the appearance maynot be as full-stage flourish,
    but if they grow bigger & healthy, the next coming years will provide more impressive blooms.
    Ofcourse, the proper care & environment should have influence, too.

    Very good spikes these - and how many on the plant ? I can't quite see. I have a couple of plants of this variety, both are in early spike, still some weeks/monmths away I guess , although I haven't been able to look at them for the last few weeks as I have been away from home, and have not got quite that far round the greenhouse yet; but it will be the second fllwowering on both my plants , the first flowering produced a single spike much shorter than yours - but then, my plants are clearly not as big as yours..
