    Default Miltassia Royal Robe 'Jerry's Pick'

    This plant is huge and overgrowing a 6" pot and grew like 12 leads last summer and I got one lousy spike out of the thing.

    I am still experimenting with my new digital camera in full manual mode. It's been a while since I had to worry about f-stops and aperture settings..metering, etc..but I tried.

    Lovely. I have one of these and it had 5 spikes and is still in bloom. It was the first time blooming for me and I was thrilled. And you're right they get very big, very fast. Congrats Clint!
