Thanks Cohan

I understand the colour is generally white to cream sometimes with red markings on the lower tepals.

Cheers Dave.

An extra fine specimen with the extra wavy margined leaves.

How old is it?  It seems about as big as it is going to get (?).

I was given it in flower last year so it was fully grown then but it has now produced two off sets this growing season. I think I will remove them as I think it may lose some of its elegance as a clump.

It would be a hard call for me- it does look great single, but a huge unruly mass of multiple stems sounds very cool too!
