Another beauty. I saw them in one of the glass houses at Kew Gardens a year or two ago and where it was, as you say, all about the leaves. Who said size doesn't matter.

Hi Jarrett
I saw these in a Glass House in Glasgow. Amazing. I recall that here were really sharp spines underneath the leaves. Presumably to discourage fish from eating them.
You can just see the spines on some of the raised edges of the leaves, in your images.
Great plants, and nice memories for me.
Thanks
Denis

They're also in abundance in one of the glasshouses in Kew Gardens
