Gonz, you forgot the details...how long is it in " or cm.?  How long does it take to come into flower? Do you have any more history on it?

Great plant!

Hi everyone.

Gonz - Even though I'm not a Tilly grower I can still appreciate something nice when I see it and that's great looking plant .

Conrad - Using the hand for comparison I'd reckon about 35cm long (depending on the size of Gonz's hand of course).

Thanks for sharing Gonz.

All the best, Nev.

Not much Conrad, it's from Chiapas according to an old tag and finally flowered for the first time. Size? I've got normal hands, can't palm a basketball that's for sure!

Thanks Gonz! Does anyone know it it is a variation of ionantha, or a natural hybrid? Brilliant specimen, Gonz, it seems like you are applying the  steroids too!
