    Not floriferous for me despite being a good grower, but I certainly love the flowers when they do come!

    Very nice indeed. When they are shy flowering, it suggests you may need more light. But the foliage looks like it had plenty of light. How do you grow it? Mine is mounted and not terribly happy about it. I'll leave it alone another year, since unmounting is a pain, there is no way to get the roots off the substrate.

    I do blast it with quite a bit of light. I’ve read that it appreciates winter light and summer shade...perhaps an example of too much light? I have it in a hydroton semihydro where it’s been going for a few years. It’s crawling out of the pot so will need a new home(s) soon!

    Marni - the flower is large, about 6.5” if stretched out tip to tip
