    I bought it as mooreana and I hate to love it. Flowers big, fragrant very much as cristata but plant more like mooreana quite big, so am not sure still if it is holder of best genes, could be better the other way round much smaller plant and more into mooreana flowers, but still very nice plant!

    Does the spike hold itself like that without staking? I really like the upright and then cascading habit!

    yes it does. It came from very new leaves growth, so they holding it as well. First when buds appears it was completely straight spike and everything match to the fact that it supposed to be mooreana, but when buds starts breaking and flowers get open, it bends from weight ;-)
