    That is a cutie. Is it a single bloom on the plant? The leaves look lots wider than the max we grow. Very cool.

    Cheers,

    The plant is about 6" tall...It currently has 6 spikes. I sometimes get 2 flowers per spike, but at times they bloom sequentially. It will bloom on and off throughout the year for me. The leaf might be 1/2" wide

    Oh wow, it looks so much larger in the photo. Thanks for the info, Ron.
