@janie love these....so dramatic. My mind boggles as to why nature decided this flower needed to be shaped like this.....!😃

@janie and to be a true black colour is unusual as mostly "black" flowers are dark purple. Does the plant get bigger each year, in terms of rhizome enlarging? I'm thinking of order a few from Thailand 😃

@drnicko they do get bigger and take a couple of years to flower. My friend tried grow one in Bendigo Vic. She kept it in her bathroom. She managed to get it to flower three years old. She was delighted . They are fussy in colder climates. Good luck Nicko 😈

@drnicko you've got an incredible set up. All you really need to do is work out what colour you want.😀
