A friend of mine bought one a few years ago and when we went to collect it we were shocked by the size of it. The plant had about 7 pseudobulbs, all with their leaves still intact and together with the pot the plant stood at 4-5 feet tall. Make sure you have enough space for it as they look more like young coconut palms than orchids and even small plants with only a few pseudobulbs will take up as much space, if not more, than a very large cymbidium.
    I did not know this. Thanks for the info. Yes, like you've said, it is a huge plant.

    Beautiful! Asperata is an odd species. I also have the problem of it not blooming, but other people could have spike after spike, non-stop...
