Success! I see that you've made it through to the list. Welcome back William.

I used to grow some of the large leafed pleurothallis, but not P. colossus.

Orchid species.com lists a praegrandis as a synonym of colossus....I honestly haven't had mine long enough to see flowers or if it will assume 'colossus' proportions. Does anyone else have experience with this species (colossus or pregrande).
