    Didn't take long for those plants to increase under your carefully oiled machine, Don. Very impressive results. And that edwardsiana just keeps getting better.


    If you're considering going for square pots, I really like the selection Harry Tolen carries at Chula Orchids: http://www.chulaorchids.com/html/square__color.html
    Plus, he's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, so let's give him some business!

    I think you misunderstood, I worded it badly , when my villosa opened a leaf it would unfurl and then expand to like twice the size as it originally was when unfurled, here are some old photos as an example.
    From this

    To this

    And then ultimately this

    I'm assuming that since edwardsiana is closely related it would do the same, from my limited experience with Eddie I have found that so far the growth style is similar to that of villosa, not only that but the leaves look almost exactly like villosa's.

    Oh, OK... You can see in the picture I posted that the new leaf is already fully unfurled but it will continue to grow until it's larger than the leaf before it. It still has some growing to do. I find that once the edwardsiana starts to inflate its pitchers, the leaf is pretty much at full size.

    mato: Thanks for the link. I need to order some of the 5.5" square x 6" deep pots.

    huh.. so it really stops only when it starts inflating?
    this is mine from a day or two ago, Im hoping this leaf will be a little big bigger than the last.. or is it to early to tell?
    (pardon the sunburn )
