    Thanks, Fren. It's an awkward bugger to photograph with all the sticky outy bits and colour contrast.

    It has two spikes, the bud on the other one is getting fatter but they probably won't overlap (they were opened at the same time during the last blooming). It slowed down a bit because I found scale on the spikes a few weeks ago I think I managed to get rid of them though.

    Forgot to mention that it faintly smells of daffodils.

    Nice job growing and a very nice photo! Mine has had a hard winter having lost it's main growth and spike. Hope is not lost though as a new growth is now showing. Next winter I'll know to keep it warmer and more humid.

    Thank you guys!

    Mine did slow down considerably (and they hardly move at the best of times to start with) in the autumn until I moved it into my warm and humid grow room for the winter. It seems to be much happier there.
