Beautiful! Can you comment on how much time between the last growth completing and the flower spike starting? Thank you 🌺
It is a single bulb (unless you count that old flower stalk) division that I bought 6 months ago. I adjusted my light timer down an hour and it threw the spike. I knew that walkers and many other species are photoperiod bloomers, but not that they were this sensitive. I think I may have also induced a two inch pot seedling walker to bloom as well...

This is an very nice clone, and the plant is capable of a better bloom size, shape, and number. It tried for 3 blossoms but had to drop two. I would have probably preferred it grow a bit more before blooming.

'It does what it want to' lol.

It looks like you have many robust walkies in the background. What culture you have for them?
