    I have about three species of this genus, but they are all very similar in appearnce ; maybe the flowers vary a bit in size. This is the larger of the three so far , although one has yet to flower. Also has half a dozen flowers , which seems a bit mor floriferous than the other. They get to be big plants, this is about 90cm leaf span, although it doesn't take up much room despite that, as it is just a single fan of leaves . I would like it to bulk up a bit - produce more keikis - it is a monopodial , in the same group as Angraecum - so in theory it could remain as a single growth. It has made a start, but my experience with others in the genus is that the keikis don't seem to grow very fast, unless taken off and grown separately - but I intend to persevere here and keep it as a single plant.

    Very nice Geoff! I have seen these grow into specimen-sized, multi growth plants...they can be impressive in bloom that way but can be space hogs.

    That's lovely Geoff. The only jumellea I have is gracilipes which has two very slow growing new growths and like you I'm leaving the plant in " one-piece".
