    Bought 2 semi-mature plants two years ago. I was told they are a bit difficult to bloom in the low land and sub-tropical climate in Hong Kong. Last year we had quite a long cool winter and this could trigger one of them to bloom.

    Beautiful! And thanks for showing the whole plant. Now, if/when mine goes into spike, I know it will need a lot of space above to accommodate the spike height.

    The plant looks superbly grown to me!

    Yes, Harvey, the spike stands about 14 inches , it has a fruity smell when you put your noise close to the flower.
