    Default Arundina graminifolia

    Got this one last year, and boy it was a flowering machine... I even thought that maybe its
    flowering itself to death. After continuously flowering for about 30 or times (kinda getting
    boring), it finally stopped flowering (cant believe myself saying that) and formed new shoots.
    And now the new shoots are spiking and this is the first one to have opened. Unfortunately,
    some of the spikes have been damaged as the neighbors dogs seems to have an appetite with
    the new growths. So I brought it indoors but still gets full sun.

    First time blooming for me.

    As is a old Yiddish saying in response to a difficulty that really is a blessing, I quote, "I should be lucky enough to have such a problem?" Amazing flowering capabilities! AL
