    This is a species from Papua New Guinea. I grow it in my tank so high 70's during the day to low 70's/high 60's at night. It's mounted on cork and watered daily. Something I found interested about this plant is how quickly the spikes develop. I noticed the spike in early development on Sunday. This morning, I noticed the flower was opening as I was watering. This is the best picture I could get. The flower formed in a weird position, and I was afraid I would break the wiry spike if I manipulated it too much.

    If I haven't already killed mine I'm moving to a "hot spot". Thanks for your post, I like it!

    Thanks Marni! It's definitely a cool little species that doesn't take up much space. I'm going to try to self my plant and maybe make these a little more available.

    I will be selling a 20ish growth plant in a few months. FYI.

    It has at least 15 spikes right now.
