    Default Onc. Kalihi 'Big'

    I know we've had some recent posts, but hopefully you all aren't sick of Psychos yet. This one followed me home from the AOS show in Dallas too. It had one little spike budding, but now the plant is double spiked. Hoorah!

    The clonal name isn't original, but it is accurate. The blooms are just over six inches tall!

    Onc. Kalihi 'Big' is onc. kramerianum x onc. papilio.

    'Big' seems appropriate. That flower looks huge!

    THanks guys -- if I can get two blooms at once, I'll post photos of the whole plant. She's a pretty big mama!

    Diane, I think you and I both PM'd poor Jenny about the same vendor and helped to push her into the psych ward.
