    very nice martin!
    although it sounds very strange to cut the spikes to increase your light level, lol.
    hope you were successful by impressing the girls!

    Impressive Martin! I love all the blooms. Sorry you had to cut them off. I hope they were appreciated by the ladies you gave them too.

    Cheers,
