Well five days on from the previous photo and we have visible buds! They’re developing quickly. I’m surprised at the amount of purple pigmentation on them for an ‘aurea’, but checking online photos, this seem to be common on the opened blooms.
I love these species that grow and bloom without stoppping just like William Green’s Rex’s. No waiting around for months on end and wondering whether the sheath will produce anything.
