    If they could all grow and bloom like this !! Each spike has 3-4 buds/blooms, but this does make staking a problem since they are all coming from the same sheath. I love the foliage and the veining on the petals..reminds me of a butterfly wing. This is growing in semi hydro .

    Great dark veins in those blooms, Gilda. I guess this one is very happy. Maybe he just doesn't want to be staked.

    Cheers,
