    Hi Chris,

    The flower size is 12.6 cm (from bottom of lip to top of dorsal sepal), and 14 cm (petal to petal). The flower spike itself is 40 cm in height.
    These measurements are non-stretched, as in how the flower is naturally holding itself. If the appendages were pulled flat then the sizes would be bigger.
