    Those are pretty...but why does planting them in a pot cause them to bloom upsidedown?

    I am not sure. This is my first bloom. I have been growing it this way for about a year now. This is how the blooms opened. All photos I see of these usually have the bloom reversed with the pink on the bottom.

    For some reason it seemed like this one took forever to go from spike to bloom. Maybe it is a species trait?
