    They stay the same colour throughout blooming.Flowers are long lasting 2 to 3 months , first time i have moved it to the grow room in full flower normally i remove the spike.Funny thing is i have wanted an alata for ages but was put off by the BIG spikes , the side spikes on the diota are longer than the spike on the alata.
    Have to move the alata into s/h & see how the spikes do.

    My alata had a 3 foot spike this year. My diota is getting close to being BS. I had a small compot of them and moved the largest one to a basket and traded the other 4 away. I hope it looks as nice as yours!!!
