    Yes, it is, Bruce. I am very surprised to have found that it is a low maintenance plant after all. I brought the one in low spike in FL last year. After the bloom, it was sort of tacked in with my other Vandeceous plants.

    I look forward to the bloom as well. Is it white with specks or another color?

    That's interesting Amey - it's only my albas which are in spike - and they have only just started - spikes not yet emerged from between the leaves . Maybe they will be right for our "Spring" ( really late winter) show at the end of February.
    I note that the ones I am seeing shown on this forum all look a lot greener and "softer" than my plants - not a hint of red in the leaves seen above for example - there is in most of mine, perhaps albas excepted ; of course so much depends on the photography , and very few pics are absolutely true to life, but I get the impression that I am growing what we use to call harder than others. No one would possibly call my giganteas lush !
    The one at the start of this thread - "speckle" is presumably what we might call the type, not the red, or the alba, or any of the newer colours that are now on offer but has very green leaves - and again, that comes back to culture
    What do you think about this ?
