Bought this plant in very sad condition and have nursed it back to health....It's beautiful in it's own way. The cups are 12" long and the leaves 15". I have it with the Phal orchids and it gets the same treatment or non-treatment which ever the case may be. It sure is different. Yesterday I noticed a bloom. Boy Cups and Blooms....Yipee.
