Hi

I posted this about two years ago now I think. Well last year it didn't bloom for me but I didn't mind.
Well this year its has redeemed it's self in a massive way, 18 flowers this year.
I grow this a lot warmer than it should be but I have never had a problem with it at all, apart from it having a year of flowering every so often.

I am just hopeing this is still in flower for a talk in a couple of weeks time seen as its been in bloom for two weeks all ready, but all the spike open together has been one week.

Looks stunning. Mine nearly dehydrated itself in the next world this year. I do find the rambling habit of it a bit awkward!

Smashing sparkling, clean, white flowers on a well grown plant, nice one Chris!
This is another classic plant I've always admired from afar but never got around to buying due to some finding it tricky to grow.

I also love it but it doesn't suit my growing conditions at all so I enjoy it vicariously :-)
