    This is quite possibly my favorite non-bulbo. Longest leaf on this plant is about 5'. The second longest is about 3.5', and it seems to get longer by the day. It blooms probably twice a year with large, 3-4" flowers.

    That is one gorgeous, healthy plant. Very nice! I love how it has eschewed the pot almost entirely. :D

    And kudos to you -- those are notoriously a bugger to grow. :)
