This one is always a pleasant surprise, both when it actually blesses me with a bloom, but also the blooms seem different every cycle...even on the same spike. it does seem to be setting a second bud on this spike, but I certainly know better than to count on any chickens before the egg starts doing more than cracking!

It's not a real beauty, but you got it to bloom which is more than I've done. I've murdered
two over the years and not a clue what I did wrong.

Looks like the synsepal split. I agree they are not simple or easy to grow. Thanks for sharing.
You noticed! It made the flower twist a bit. This is this plant’s third blooming growth and it’s never done that. Normally it has the cutest flower in my little phrag collection...😔

Thanks, so far it has put up with the torture I subject it to! Lets see if that little bud pops out of the spike for a second bloom...
