    Pretty bloom! I have a richteri and yes the leaves are very long and slender, very grasslike.

    Interesting combination...looks like both parents want to dominate and neither is able to. Pete, how big is your richteri? I have one that bloomed on a plant not more than 12" across, but heard they can get massive (Sorcerer's Apprentice sized)...

    I remember your richteri. You had once emailed me or posted the picture online about a year or two ago.

    Mine is now a multigrowth plant and it is not a small plant. The leaves are quite narrow but very long, I would say the longest is about 2 and half feet to 3 feet long.

    Yikes. I think I either don't have a normal richteri or I really need to start growing this one better. I'd bet on the latter. Although I think it has taken to s/h rather well.

    People are always saying richteri is a small compact species and they are not, they can get very BIG.
