    It looks like a good size, healthy plant. Any guesses as to why just one flower? Looks like a nice flower. Could you provide some dimensions? Thanks. Mike

    Not sure why just 1 flower, it is blooming out of a really old growth, there is another growth in low sheath with a half inch start, I'm hoping that one will bloom out although spring is pretty much over here.....the petal width is 8 1/4 inches the dorsel is 2" wide and 2 1/2 tall, I think that flower is about average

    Very healthy plant Troy. The form is really good.
    The spike could get the heat from the light.

    I'm betting it spikes up with a higher flower count, either on the low bud or on a future blooming.
