Dear Joe,
Send me a pic. and I may be able to solve your dellima!  8' is NOT tall for a D. gigas, you may have another species!!
Best Wishes,
>>I am comfortable with the identification of my D. gigas but not with its' development.   While aware of the  natural degrees of variability among a species I cannot accont for its' erractic flowering.   Despite its age and robust growth- pedicle 8' tall- its' flower has never opened as in pictures I  have seen.   I pine for  seeing the lovely crimson color of the spathe underside.  Have opthers experienced this?  Is this  natural or is perhaps this another species?   Comments?    Joe <<
