Default Rhynchostylis gigantea

Mine, which I bought in Sept. of 2002, bloomed in Jan 2004. I don't think it
grew much after I bought it.
Leaf span is uneven, about 7" or 8" on one side and up to 10" on the other.

What is the size of a flowering size Rhynchostylis gigantea, e.g.
what's the leave span from tip to tip ?
I have some small plants for a couple of years now, and by the rate
they're growing it'll be a long time before they flower.

night in the mid-30s, but they complained about for quite some time

Good growing,
