    All of these are from Couples San Souci, Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

    Ricky,

    Great photos. There's no leginess in those monster plants. The long leaf pink variety is Veitchii not Queen Victoria.

    Ray - I agree. After looking at the photo again, checking my Queen Victoria, and matching both against the pictures in the book, it's definitely a Veitchii. I'll have to take cuttings when we go back in October.
