Thanks! It was grown under lights. Ceiling tracklight; Cree spots.
..........Stem length from top of pot, not including sheath or ovary: 26-3/4".........
I agree.Volonteanum grows in habitat surrounded with high grass so if it wants to be visible for pollinators( maybe some kind og flies) it must be have very long stem.Very nice plant and flower anyway.You do wonder about the reasons for this species and the recently posted malipoense developing such long stems. I assume that it makes the blooms more accessible or likely to be pollinated.
