    O.K. Bruce its all your fault and not for breaking the spike. I imagine that was easy to do, but for how you let that plant grow like that...............For Shame! AL

    I find all the reed-stems very brittle and so easily snapped; some of the taller ones just never get to flower for me, because by the time they are more than about 3 feet tall they extend way beyond any stake I keep and there is a portion not supported which seems to get caught on something when I try and lift the plant off the bench. The shorter ones are OK because I make sure the stakes are higher than the plants until they are actually in flower.
    I have not seen this one of yours ; I think this kind of Epi is bred a lot in Hawaii, and of course you can get them without CITES, whereas we get nothing from any part of the USA - I'm not sure if your peoples interpretation (of CITES) is even more severe and daft than the UK ones, or vice versa . Correction we do see some US plants - one or two of the Paph specialists make it across the pound but mabe it needs to be plants which sell for at least US$50 and probably three figures to make all the hassle worthwhile for the dealer.
    A pity , I have a soft spot for reed stems, especially when as bright as this.
