I went to the SF Conservatory of Flowers this past weekend and took a few pictures of the neps with my incredible phone camera. A few of their plants were blooming, including the truncata with a huge 3ft+ spike.
A very nice raff
Oh boy truncata. Can you imagine a robcantleyi like this?? (in 20 years of course hah) That stem is just about a quarter in diameter.
Easily 1.5 ft tall
Bushy enough? (ventricosa)
Totally rad and huge variegated something-or-other
That's all my phone could handle hah. They had a few others, some small and some big, but these were the best.
