    Just saw, that mine is spiking, too. I hope i'll bring it to flower. It flowered three times till now but every other year I lost the flowerspike by rotting/wilting away before opening. I guess I'm a bit to careless in getting no water on the young spike...

    That’s gorgeous. I need to get one. How long does the flower last on these? I understand they’re fairly short lived.....but worth it.

    Wendy, the flower started to open on the 2., fully open the 10., still going strong now…

    I had vietnamense flowers that lasted up to 3 weeks !!! they don't like too warm when in bloom.

    I can confirm that. I'm growing in hot conditions and the flowers last less than 2 weeks.
