    it's a first time, that my plant has developed 4 spikes. The flowers are huge, more then 15 cm across. The smell so strong, that I've had to bring it out of my greenhouse.

    6" sounds more realistic. but still big. i always thought these were like little minatures. or is that the 'gongora' group? i find these are pretty available to order, but a dearth of information on them. all the articles focus on the pot needing an open bottom, and little other info. only one place even tells temperature tolerance, and it says nothing about light.
