Thanks Wilbert,

I actually have this plant under a series of collection numbers from the
expedition and 'giganteum' was a pet name given to it by Greg. I didn't
think the name would stick so I am glad you have cleared it up.

I get flowers every year now and it still amazes me.
Long live A. dahaiense !
