    My roth 'Janet' x 'CH' is 30 inches unstretched with many new growths. It is big clone and I think roth 'Rex' x 'MM' is a more compact clone.

    I have heard that Mont Millais is a very compact clone, as far as roths go. I saw it at the NY show a few years back...it was large, but it was a specimen plant with 3 spikes or so.

    I think 'Rex' is a good ol'fashioned big 'un.

    That explains why my PEOY (roth Rex x sand Jacob's Ladder) is huge!

    However, my roth Rex x MM is slightly smaller than my roth Janet x CH because of the MM clone I guess.

    Yes, the PEOY I got from Parkside was 'Rex' x sandy 'Deep Pockets' and it is almost as enormous as the Bel Royal (which was made with 'Charles E' and a 6 or 7 foot mature kolo).

    My kolo is a little over 3 ft in LS, it's getting there and fast. This species is fast growing, much faster than the roths and its other closer related cousins.

    I would hope so, considering how big it has to get!

    While I really think kolo is a beautiful species, I am afraid I am going to have to pass on that one! Just too darn big. Unbelievably big! The one you have, Peter, is fabulous. I remember it from your sunporch pics.

    Yes, they are the giants of Paphs. It is not fully grown yet and it is already bigger than my matured BS roth and PEOY! The biggest leaves are almost 3+ inches wide and about 20 inches long! Definitely a space hog!

    The grapevine tells me that they have a light honeysuckle fragrance...
