    Purchased back in 1998 as miniatum. From what I read the miniatum is rare in culture. I grow it in bright light, as you can see the leave in the whole plant shot (for those lovers of whole plant shots). It's been growing in this wood basket from the start. No media, just the basket.

    I have this crossed with Renanthera monachica out in the greenhouse, some already in 4" baskets.

    Egoista, Giant? That's a 4" basket that its been growing in for more than 10 years. It's small yet.

    I think when you get about 5 plants and 10 spikes, then you got a giant.
