    Beautiful photo!!

    I have this species and are waiting for it to flower. The leafs grow very well and I can see a small flowerstalk. It have been about 1 cm long but have been like that for 2 months. Looks like it have stopped. How would I get it to grow out??

    How do you grow yours?

    "How would I get it to grow out??"

    Patience. I've noticed my plant initiates spikes only to have them remain unchanged for a few months. Then when new growth resumes, so do the spikes.

    "How do you grow yours?"

    Basket. Bottom 2/3rds full of tree fern fiber. Top 1/3 is New Zealand sphagnum moss. Constant moisture at the roots. Medium to brisk air movement. Bright filtered light. Winter 58-75°F; summer 60-82°F.
