    8 inches long, thanks Sheryl! In a few years they could reach longer then 12 inches as the plant grows, tight now it is only in a 5 inch pot.

    Hang on now. I thought "alba" indicated a lack of pigmentation other than white or green...

    That’s impressive to say the least.

    Now there is longiflorum also. I guess longissimum is “longer” than longiflorum based on the picture, yes?

    Thanks Arne! B. longiflorum is a totally different shape looking like an umbrella with much thicker petals.

    Wow, those are long blooms already! I'm sure they are going to grow much longer as the plant matures too! Beautiful.

    cheers,
