    It is a very nice roth primary cross and this is an excellent example of it! I am very happy with this one. I have a few plants of this hybrid and so far this is the best! I am very pleased with it, to say the least.

    The leaf span is only about 12" so it is no monster! I have a couple of roth primaries that have leaf spans of close to 24"

    I didn't take a side view of it but can in the future.

    Connie the chubby thing is the pouch, it is a modified labellum (lip)

    So that is what mine is SUPPOSED to look like. I have been growing a 'blooming size' plant for 3 years. It seems to think it is a foliage plant.

    Yours is fantastic. With mine, maybe someday..........
