Thank you Chris, I lost the first spike , the second aborted twice, weeks from flowering. and the third did the job.
As a horticulturist, you know the drive/challenge to Grow.
This was the toughest challenge since germinating my Xmas Date seeds (phoenix canariensis)
I'm thinking this is the genus for my ongoing Orchid pursuit.
