Hi Ch'ien,

Thanks for the help. It's always interesting to receive information
about these wonderful plants in their natural habitat.

Some time ago I looked in the CP list archives from 1996 and was quite
surprised when people there mentioned lowland forms (in cultivation)
with 50 cm leaves. But beside size, is there differences in leaf shape
(base/apex) between highland and lowland plants?
