I didn't think I was going to get any pHili flowers this year since the season was passed and all the growths on my plants seemed immature. Then this one cranked out 2 spikes. The flower count is a bit down for this plant, but I'm happy to see flowers. Petal length is about 19cm on these guys.

Nice plant Rick!

There was a ton of blooming phili action in December (which is very early). Mine are usually played out by the end of April, with the bracts appearing in Jan/Feb. This one didn't even show a bract till the end of March. There does seem to be a late burst of philis going on now.???
Wow, now I really can't wait for my little fella to be all grown up. Thanks for sharing.
