    Default Lc. Purpurato-rex

    I was very surprised when I noticed this was in bloom, didn't see the bloom until right over top of it. Last bloomed in August of last year.

    I have no clue I did not even know it was in spike, only knew it was in bloom when I found it, the pb is pointing straight out over the edge of the clay pot and grew under leaves from another plant in front of it.

    Such a problem to have! My collection is small so I know every spike as soon as it starts to develop. Enjoy Jack, it's a beauty!
