I've been waiting and waiting and waiting for most of the flowers to bloom on this plant. This is a pretty sizable bloom for me.

For some reason I'm having trouble getting a good photograph of the plant but this will have to do for now.

This plant was a gift from Yoshi a couple of years ago when he was downsizing his collection. Thanks Yoshi.

How come all the flowers are facing at the same wonky angle?
My train of thought derailed. There were no survivors.

What a nice show. I love this species but it just crawls along for me. I may have to move west to grow it properly.
