I always wanted to have a Grammatophyllum Scriptum. I think that the flowers look great, and the plant has a good look to it. However, when visiting Tom Perlite at Golden Gate Orchids, I noticed a Grammatophyllum in his greenhouse, and it was about six feet tall. It turns out that it is the largest orchid in the species, and totally unacceptable for my small orchid room.
Somewhat later, I found Grammatophyllum Scriptum var. Kiilani, a miniature version of the large orchid, and I started looking for one right away. I found one on eBay and ordered it on May 22 from peaandshel. They seem to need the same culture as the larger Grammatophyllum Scriptum, intermediate to warm temperatures (but can take cold down to freezing for a limited time), morning and afternoon sun, and water as we would with other S/H plants. Most people say that this plant grows vigorously, with blooming possible most of the year.
My little Grammatophyllum Scriptum var. Kiilani, had a single spike and a few buds when it was delivered, and I repotted it right away. The buds started looking weak, and two started to fall off, so I cut off the spike, and put the plant on my top shelf of the orchid room. It now looks better, and has just developed a new spike.
