    IW grower.Gift from a friend 6 weeks ago. Flowers, exclusive of the nectary, are 3 1/2" tall. The gardener was supposed to groom this plant, but he didn't. That's another quarter off his Christmas bonus. :bang:

    That must be one of the best gifts ever given. I wish I had (some) of your friends!

    Wow that is beautifully obscene-looking, Dale, possibly only topped in that regard by your close stack of Trichoceros onaensis. And Forrest is right, we really need to see a close-up of that thing.
