    Default Grammatophyllum speciosum - yellow form

    This is the yellow form Gram speciosum and reputed to be only one of its kind in cultivation (according to the vendor). I recently visited the vendor to see this specimen for myself. He had 3 big pots of this and one had already been sold for MR 10,000 (US $3000) and another had been booked and he is keeping the last one for himself. These are supposed to be vegetative divisions from a wild collected plant.

    So let me guess, Yew, you are that person that has "booked" the second division. I'm sure your wife would understand.

    Very nice, clean yellow.

    That is a huge plant and the spikes are impressive. May I ask approximately how old is this plant.

    I don't know, but it must have taken several years to grow to that size.

    The vendor, standing next to the plant is 5 ft 8 ins tall and the tallest cane is about 5 ft, I would say that is average for a cultivated plant. However, in the wild I have seen them growing on branches of giant trees, to 12 to 15 long. Agreed - that's a lot of money to pay for a plant.
