    Thank you everyone.
    Yes, Connie. As soon as I get back "officially" from Orlando. They do get really big, but you have the room for it.
    I've driven back from Orlando twice now. Yesterday was my granddaughter, Delaney Grace's family birthday party. You can't miss a birthday party for one of the big loves of your life...so grammy drove an hour and 1/2 back to sing Happy Birthday.

    anyone know how much sun these can take? i found the ansellia while searching online for an orchid that can handle some sun. i have a spot where i was hoping some jungle cacti would be enough to shade a nice renanthera 'tom thumb', but it got a little toasted over the winter. in summer it will only get very bright light, but in winter the sun angles down and gives it a fair amount of sun in mid winter. i'm wondering if this will do well there? or maybe a schomburgkia instead?

    I thought the species name on this was africana not gigantea
