Wow, Clint. That's really tall and healthy! I got mine from the store, but straight out of the box they just received from the grower... so I guess, in essence, I got mine almost-direct.
Not the best picture, but the smaller spike has 3 blooms, the larger has 6. I think this might be a fairly young plant.
Oh! And here's one of the weird spiky-root thing (I'm leaning towards confused root).
