Phrag longifolium seems to shift its petals all the time so I keep re-taking photos because it keeps getting better as its twists more....I wonder if it is finished yet

It blooms but now with a much stronger spike. The leaf span twice as big as its first one. The lighting was different to the photos from before so it looks different. And the division is 'Carpella', the grower I bought it from told me its a good breeder.

OK January's spike is still going and its on its 18th bloom!!! I can't believe this, there is another 19th bud. (somehow I think this is not normal. Is it?) The spike has curled back to facing the windowsill.

And its new growth has matured and it has a new spike. Not bad for a three growth plant on a windowsill. The only big flower quality flaw is the dorsal twist in every bloom
