    Default Ansellia Gigantea Nilotica 'Wannakee' AM/AOS

    Found this today at a friend's greenhouse. Needless to say... it came home with me! Pretty interesting plant, and blooms. Kind of reminds me of a Grammatophyllum.

    Of course you brought it home, Aaron - it's a BIG plant!

    There's a lot of variation in the spotting in this species, from none to heavy. I like your flower!

    The accepted name is Aslla. gigantea var. nilotica 'Waunakee' AM/AOS. Hope you don't mind my nit-picking. I always like to get the tag right.

    It is indeed an oustanding clone of this species! Very nice contrast and the yellow color is crisp!
    Cheers. Hoa.
