This plant grows and blooms reliably.
It was last in bloom in late summer into fall of 2019.
Bought as a large seedling in 2016. The very first sheath blasted. It took a while to start a new growth. I though I was going to be in for a frustrating ride with this one, but after the successful second blooming (well, first blooming sort of), it started to grow and bloom at least once or twice a year.
It started to bloom with two spikes each bearing two buds that opens successively since about two years ago, and this year, it started to grow in multiple directions!
There is a third sheath on one of the newer growth. What a keeper! :)

The cross is micranthum x Mem Hirohisa Kawai

Very attractive colours - interesting to notice the difference between the flowers of the two growths...did you start our with a one growth seedling or were there possibly different clones from the outset?

The one on the left is pale because it has been open for some time now. It just felt off last night actually. The other one is fresh open bloom.
