    We have a couple of grammatophyllums, but because the spikes get so huge it is hard to photograph them. They are too large to remove from the GH and the spikes grow to between 6 and 8 feet in length.

    Very nice color on this one, Aaron.

    Cheers!

    This plant isn't all THAT big yet! It has 5 new growths on it, and will soon be much larger. But specifically speaking Grammatphyllum are the largest of all orchid species. Not this exact plant. (Thankfully) I have seen some gramm that were 7 feet tall! This one plant has that one spike where the blooms are concentrated on the end, but you don't see the other spikes that are around 3-4 feet long. I could only bring myself to get this one gramm because of their size. Thanks BD!
