    Very nice Zain, it seems the plant is raised high judging from the angle of the shots.
    If this can grow in the lowlands I'd love to have one of these. By the way how big is
    the plant? to me the name suggests it to have huge leaves....

    Randy, I saw one. Leaves are more then 60 cm long and 15 cm wide. Even gigantifolium.
    The whole pant is huge, but the flowers very nice.

    Hi Mietek, thanks for the explanation I agree with you one thing the leaves is very thin as compare to koloparkingii.
    Peter the plants that you show us is koloparkingii native to Borneo, gigantifolium come from Sulawesi.

    I have a gigantifolium x sanderianum. Too young to flower yet, so waiting patiently. Any ideas as to what I should do special built on the influence of the gigantifolium parent?
