To answer a couple of questions. The plant is the size of an equestris and the leaves look like equestris except longer. The spikes are about a foot long each. Two spikes, one is blooming non-stop two buds at a time, and the other is putting out a keiki that just started rooting. The flower is the size of a violacea bloom or the size of a half dollar coin. I have not noticed a strong scent from this. The color in the photo above is true. This baby is grape purple.
