    5 spikes - one still to open. It crept up on me, this one. I have not been up in the greenhouse roof handling every plant for months, probably, but finally caught up with myself and got around to it. Found this straight away of course - just 5 spikes at that stage. Have watched them opening, and changing colour from pale yellow to a darker colour . I may not be around or have time, when they are at their best, so I took a camera into the greenhouse and snapped it where it hangs.
    If I can, I will take it into my study and do a better pic, in the week.

    Plant is growing in a net pot - one bulb has grown through the side, and so has a spike. It likes this, evidently. Q uite how I shall repot, I'm not sure - probably just let it carry oin without repotting ! At any rate, not this year at least.

    Wow. Looks nice. I would leave it as as it has a habit of growing over itself.
