    Seems very determined to flower for me - has produced buds several times, but had them shrivel ( too dry , in the enclosure providing extra heat ) . I have been doling a rebuild of these warmer cabinets for several reasons as part of my bench rebuild , putting a wet substage in which I hope will cure the problem in the coming cold months . Recently, not needing the extra heat in an unusually good summer here in Uk, this plant has been put where it could be sprayed quite frequently, and this is the result. Quite small flowers, but rather striking, I think.

    I love this Geoff! I was just looking at pics of them on the internet yesterday as I have been consumed with desire for one since Luke posted one a few months ago. They are absolutely gorgeous! Great job! Congratulations!

    Actually it was a different one Luke posted. My bad!
