This took a year from the time I spottet the bud until it opened. My fault no doubt, as I had to move it when the spike became too long for my growspace.
It simply stopped growing after that, so I eventually moved it back and found a way to keep it under the LEDs. Several months later it decided to open :)
I'm surpriced it didn't just blast.

Congrats! It is only my experience: they need cool temp( 16-20C), less water and high humidity in budding period.

Surprised.... and lucky, I presume?! 😉 Congrats on the flowering, Per!

Ps. I received my first plants from Exotic Plants (https://exoticplantcompany.com)...and they are of a very good quality: P. godefroyae ('Black'), P. godefroyae fma album, P. Gloria Naugle and P. Dolgoldii. I can't wait to see them in bloom.
Thank you for the tip!
