    nice! i love mine. it took a while to get the spikes to flower, but i think i have the hang of it. they do not like to dry out, need to stay moist or the flowers stop growing. it will resume later, but may have to grow a side shoot if the top bud fails, which takes months. once i got the watering more even, it has done pretty well. i am nervous about repotting though. i want to try semi-hydro maybe. mine came potted in regular potting soil.
