    Hmmm...I am trying to find a fitting Joycian adjective to adequatly describe my reaction to seeing such a...hmmm, well...tall plant, but 100 character lenght words are escaping me at the moment. I guess WOW will have to suffice...or Holy $#!+ Would you mind sending a close up of the bloom? Just curious to see what that part of the plant looks like. By the way, I agree...it should get it's own green house!

    Just become worried if it starts singin' songs from Little Shop of Horrors

    These are the first 2 flowers.Flower size was about 7" or a little bigger.
    Colour is pretty accurate except the dorsal is pinker.
    I have had quite a range of colour intensity , sometimes very pink & sometimes only slightly pink.They nearly all start of almost red & fade to different shades of pink after a few weeks.Light intensity may play a big part.
