This is one of the two spikes in bloom right now. Two already bloomed. There are about eight more on the way.

That's a very pretty Gongora Sue. I got a couple a few years back, one was supposed to be a cassidea, but they both turned out to be different forms of truncatum.

It's in sphag. Also, I understand that this is likely to be G. galeata, not G. cassidea.

In the second, as you can see, the flower is fading.
