    Hey Chomper,

    Tamlin posted some pics in here, not sure where though but a quick search should pull it up.

    The flower ended up being mauve (much to my shagrin as the plant originated with me and now I am bummed that it isn't the real 'alba&#39[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Still and all it was a beautiful bloom.

    I have a question about this species. I just got a clump and haven't yet eliminated enough variables to know what to do next. I thought perhaps it was getting too cold from the draughts from my open window (since it's a tropical plant), but after reading this thread i guess that's not right!

    I guess i should explain what the problem is. The leaves are turning a brownish-purple, mostly around the centre vein. It's not a nice brownish-purple, but rather a nasty looking brownish purple. Now that i've ruled out the cold, i am still trying to decide between humidity and light. I put a plastic cup over the remaining leaves to see if they do better with the raised humidity. I've got the plant about 15 cm under fluorescent growlights - is that too much light?

    Anyway, after all the excitement about Tamlin's plant, i really hope to get to see some of those beautiful blooms myself someday soon!

    Thanks - and this is my first post here. Nice place ya got...

    The clone of this plant that William and I grow gets a purple/brown at the base of the leaf, this is just a normal colouring though. It sounds as if maybe your plant is getting so much light that this colour is developing more on your plant. Go for a half sun to bright indirect lighting for it and see how it goes.

    And welcome to the forums [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Hope to see more of you

    I've got it under fluorscent lights. It seems unlikely it could be getting "too much" light that way, but i've moved it out a bit to see if it does better at lower light levels.




    The smaller leaf on the right (in the middle back on the lower picture). Started out ok, and has just recently started turning the same brown-purpleI don't think these are ornamental purple blotches. What's wrong with my plant?!?

    It looks like a fungal attack of some sort to me. I can offer no advise regarding what to do, as I have never had to deal with it, but you might try reducing the humidity and see if this makes any improvement.
