    What a lovely flower! Thanks, Nelson!

    I didn't understand why this guy was called the bamboo orchid until I saw a picture of the plant:

    I don't think I'll be buying one anytime soon...

    The blooms are beautiful, they look like they are floating above the plant.

    Beautiful blooms. Do these ever grow like this in the wild or only under
    cultivation?

    Beautiful blooms, but you would need a stepladder to see them if you were growing the plant in your yard.

    I think of a shrub as something far more diminutive. That's a metropolis!

    Some canes from the clump may have been 2 meters tall.
