    One of my V gigantea reached 73.75" in length from the "bulb" to the tip of its longest leaf. Is this common? So far most V gigantea profile I've read report a lenght of 39".

    All my specimens have reached length that goes beyond the reported 39" by far.

    Is this due to CO2 and EI or do these plants get this long in nature?
