    Intermediate grower. Flower is about 0.3"
    It could be a mislabeled plant, but I will call it what the tag says for now...

    Man that's great, Tom! Are those keikis at the ends of the spikes or just how the bracts/buds are shaped as they develop?

    I don't know if I would call it keikis. One of the flower spikes from last year did send out some roots along the flower stem after it finished blooming, and it produced a new flower spike from the tip this year, however there is no growth with pbulb and leaves.

    Pretty interesting, Tom. I wonder if it would put out new growths if it was rooted to a substrate? On a big mount that might produce a crazy giant specimen/population.
