It seems to be putting out new growths). I have to get it more light
I took more pictures from all angles sunday morning at work. Coworkers did a nice job watering it and others cooperated by not picking the flower or anything like that. I was going to measure but got distracted. Any shows around these parts? (Se pa, md, south jersey)

Stake that lovely Charles. If your longifolium is like the ones I have, the
spike gets so long with continuous blooms that the stem gets distorted.
A well supported stem blooms longer. My longifolium album 'Super
Charlie' has nine blooms so far and is still growing.

I did find a small plant stake and remembered that I had a whole bag of spiedie skewers :) and I found a bag of long green floral wire that came in very handy. Although I did stake my hab medusae initially with a rusted off aquarium fish net handle
