Very interesting photo Tom.  That leaf was huge.  Any information on where that specimen is located?  Yes price was a bit steep, but also a much larger plant than what either of mine were.  Mine now have the main trunks at similar diameter as both the ones for sale but are branched at 2 feet or less.  Both of these were taller and likely growing in a greenhouse prior to the retail nursery getting them. Owners of the nursery are friends so will have to ask about it next time I see them.  Both plants were new inventory since I walked through 2 weeks prior.

Jardín de las Aves is where it apparently was grown (Columbia, South America).

Your photo is serving as an inspiration for me to put much more time (and effort) into trying to push my 2 paltry rooted cuttings far beyond their current condition (with 2" leaves), and see if I can really "push the envelope" much, much further. The results may not match your image, but at least I know their full potential.

Hi 101˚, Lo 66˚

Addendum: Today I transplanted both of my runts in an all out effort to try to achieve a similar appearance to the large leaved images recently posted. Wish me luck.
