    Thank you kind member for a chunk of this one...I had forgotten how big they can get. 16" growths Once thought to be a seperate species but is now considered a natural cross of kingianum x speciosum var. hillii

    That's a nice one, Ron and a very healthy plant! I have a couple of delicatums but nowhere near that size yet.

    Ron & JonP, Den Delicatum 'Apple Blossom' is usually shown here growing in 12 inch or bigger pots with 100 + spikes and canes about the same as yours Ron, or longer.
