    I didn't have time to get out the real photo gear, so I used my iPhone to snap a few pics. They suck, but the sheer awesomeness of this species outweighs the Ronesque quality of the photos.

    This is up there in that "gem of the genus" group. For me atleast. Do u ever get multiple flowers open @ once?

    Thanks folks.

    AWUM: I was living out of state for 5 months, and this is the first time I've seen it bloom, though I did see 5 spikes at similar maturities in November. I'm guessing it was quite the show, but I had to leave town before they opened.

    This species is one of my most prized and rare plants. I acquired it in 2009, and the source killed the mother plant. Took me a decade of searching high and low to find this on in the US. Glad I got it when I did. It seems pretty happy, and it's growing well for me.

    That's probably why it bloomed.

    "Ronesque". I like that.

    As the for the plant, well, you already know how I feel about it.
