    When I see these flowers I think 'I must have one!'

    Then I remember the 45 ft long spikes.

    Very nice, Tom.

    Thanks.

    This clone has short spike, 3-4 feet tall. Each spike will carry up to 15 flowers.

    Nice but will it always have a spike that short? Had one with 12-16' foot spikes...it now resides in TX

    Yup, at least for the last four years under my care. Friend of mine had this one in the gh and it always had shorter spikes. Mine is a division of his and I believe it originally came from Waldor's private collection.

    Hmmmm....going right past Waldors this summer. It has nice form as well!!

    One day, my seedling will get too big and I will need to get rid of that as well but want to bloom it first.

    In double spike and about 8-10 ft now...gotta love it!
    There is no tibicinis anymore...they broke it up into three different Myrmecophilia...makes me sick. A tibo is a tibo to me....love the color of your's, Tom.

    I need to divide this plant soon after the flower. I may have one or two divisions for sale or trade. If you are interested in it, please send me a PM.

    Very nice! Mine is spiking right now. Unfortunately, the spike it up to the ceiling and will most likely fry in the heat and sun. I need to find a better location for it. :rolleyes:

    That is so beautiful. Mine is small but bloomed last year. I'm looking but not seeing anything this year.
