Thought I would make a thread to show the growth rate of my x kinabaluensis since its the jewel of my collection and I have had it exactly for a year now.

October 2013, when I bought it as a villosa

Nice plant didn't think there were to many of these out there. I always love the year in the life things or the updated photo threads to show how plants are progressing.
thanks guys, i'll definitely make it more comprehensive tomorrow, im just wiped out from this weekend.
I hope the show was a success!

Just added some more pics.
Excellent Heli, it seems that it grows a little faster than Villosa?
Amazing plant Heli thank-you for sharing! That growth rate is amazing.
