    Beautiful flowers. How big is the whole plant? I acquired a seedling in the spring. It's growing nicely, but I have no idea how big it needs to be to bloom. Can you tell me how you're growing yours? Thanks.

    The leaves (4) are 10cm long and 4cm wide!!
    The roots must dry between two waterings so I don't use sphagnum, it is directly mounted on bark and I keep it in shade, with warm.

    E.rotschildiana doesn't come from Madagascar, but from Central Africa,.
    Guinea, Ghana, or Congo for example!!;)

    I'd like to hang on to >50 plants and start selective breeding to get longer inflorescences that would extend beyond the leaves in order to not be obstructed. Either that or continue down the hybrid route.

    By the way! I appreciate that your roth exemplifies what I'd prefer mine to do. I've some from 3 different bloodlines that still are stuck up in the foliage.
