    north of Los Angeles. Ca,
    Got this as a seedling about 4 years ago at the Santa Barbara show, the pot had 2 different plants in it, so I got 2 for the price of one. One was very much smaller then other one and has always been the case, last year the taller one grew 2 side growths that are now almost as big as other seedling. The 2 bloom spikes are from the smaller seedling not the bigger guy with 2 growths, go figure.

    Pictures are the flowers, then larger seedling with its 2 growths and last picture of smaller seedling with flower spikes.

    c,i,w, bright light, lots of water all year, even feeding.

    Wow, I wish mine would clump like that, but so far, no keikies. My mama plant is huge, though, and flowers well. What's your secret? They are beautiful!
