    Bought this one with old spikes, after few months, those old reflower, and I have another two forming ;-) Wish the flower have more darker shades, but because of hight of spikes still quite well presented sp.

    That's a lot of spikes for a 7-leaf plant.

    ;-) and as you can see on tallest spike second flower forming - I saw picture online with up to 2-3 flowers on the same spike, same time ;-) Those flowers are 10cm tall - well not huge but not tiny either, am not sure if this is visible on the pictures.

    Just read that this sp was lost for over 130 years and rediscovered in Colombia in a narrow gold mining valley in 1982.
