    Cool looking phal. Those inflorescence are amazing! Are those the flower bracts causing the zigzag pattern? Is it a constant bloomer? I see a couple of them have branched

    Yes, the shape of spikes is typical for CC / borneensis and pantherina. Spikes can grow and branch during several years (2 to 5).
    This plant blooms from May to October.

    Heres are the "cornu-cervi" like spikes :
