Description: As the epithet for this species implies this is a giant, capable of bearing huge panicles of up to 400 white flowers on arching stems to 2.5m long in the southern end of its range. Even growing as an epiphyte in moist forests, but this collection was gathered from high altitude on the Cordillera de Talamanca, Costa Rica, where they formed substantial congested plants to 1.5 m tall, in colonies within the cloud forest only occasionally found as epiphytes. Best grown in a reasonably sheltered site in a moisture retentive but drained soil, in sun or light shade. Was Smilacina gigas
