    Very Impressive!!
    Are you the one that got an AM, or did you buy it as a division?

    Just so you know, this plant is NOT a Phrag. Grande (caudatum x longifolium), but a Phrag. Super Grande (popowii aka warscewiczii) x longifolium). These plants were often mislabeled, because it is not until a few years ago that for registration purposses Phrag. popowii (aka warscewiczii) was considered a valid species. You can always recognize Phrag. Super Grande from it's darker flowers compared to Phrag. Grande.

    Interesting observation, Robert. So any Grande that is dark is actually Super Grande???

    This plant is impressive -- and I thought my Grande was doing well with two spikes.
