    Tom, Mine is about 80 to 20 inches tall and a couple leads. Yours should be BS. I've seen them bloom on tiny plants.

    The time has come to say that you are the *Vandaceous Queen! of Florida* Clocked this plant recently in a duo and temptation still looms, shining bright infact, love the Renanthera monachica also bet youll be showing off the blooming Trichoglottis Phil. Brach soon. no?. 'Young plants' advertised av. $10 approx currency convert from Euro. How long with good care would your rough guess estimation be for first spike on young renenthera.
    Hey Matt...I've never been a queen before I saw an entire section of monachica in bloom on small plants at my species guy. I waited a long time on the citrina. Moved it around and finally found a place it liked in very high light. My Trichoglottis bloomed on a small plant. But it only blooms once a year for me. The Trichoglottis is much faster growing than the Renanthera. But the Ren. produced offsets pretty easily.

    Lovely citrina. I guess this is not heat tolerant. That's why I haven't seen this here before.

    It's heat tolerant...it's been in the 90's for the past couple of months.

    "The Trichoglottis is much faster growing. Renanthera produced offsets pretty easily" - Vandaceous Queen!...or does Queen Vandaceous sound better?!.these issues are important!.............quite clearly 2 very good undisputable reasons to have both or go and buy both! whichever most applicable.!!!!!!and fit for a Q x
