    Nice!

    I have the same plant, but mine only blooms in the Fall. How do you grow this one in the winter? (I may have been too kind to mine.)

    I watered it twice less in the winter, but gave it a lot of light. It hasn't grown any new pbs since I got it last April and I was kind of nervous. When it started to bloom 3 or 4 weeks ago, I cut off the spikes to encourage it to grow new growths. The trick worked, it sent out 2 new growths, so now it's OK for it to bloom more.

    Default Good to know!

    Thanks for the cultural tips.

    Mine has been making new growths since blooming last Fall. It has already matured two new fat canes and two new ones are almost mature. Maybe mine will bloom soon...or it could just tease me and wait to the Fall.

    We'll see!

    Good job, Qing!

    Yes, I remember yours were blooming later than mine, I am sure it will send out spikes soon.

    I have one which is completely stalled since it bloomed in the fall. It is green but no growth at all: no new roots, or bulbs. nothing.
