    Flower side view:


    Flower close-up - notice the split-red anthers for which the plant is named (with pollen poking out from the sides):


    Pic of the entire plant from yesterday:


    Top view - this plant lives under a 7" (~18 cm) diameter glass dome and as you can see, all of the largest leaf ends are bent from hitting the glass. The true diameter is something north of 7"...


    Side view:


    Close-up of the 'aerial' roots it's sending out. This plant really wants to make a mat of schizandra plants - as seen in native habitat pics (or Andrew's):
    All the best,

    Wow, that's certainly a beautiful sight- Those dimensions you've described are incredible! Such a short flower stalk for a dew that enormous!

    Wow, great growing Ron.
    I hope to be able to get the correct growing conditions for this plant soon. I want to grow it.

    Wow that's nice! I totally hate the plant itself, but would consider growing it just for the flowers now.

    Does Schizandra hybridize with any other species?

    Amazing Ron! Great growing, that thing is sweet (and huge!) Thanks for the flower pics, my plants are much smaller than that. But I admit to probably not growing them in as dark a spot as most seem to.
