This is the second blooming for this plant. My question is, why are the spikes so much shorter than when I bought it.

Great looking plant!

I just got a twinkle, how often does yours bloom?

That is beautiful, reminds me of apple blossoms. I cant answer your question, but enjoyed the flowers.

Light level is probably higher in your conditions. It looks nice being compact like that. How is a fragrance?

oh ps I love the background you used I love seeing bold colors and something other than black. (Although black is what I tend to stick with) One tip and a nit picky one at that. If possible pull the plant away from the background so the shadows are not as sharp and tight to the leaves. I wouldn't worry about it too much though this pic pops out real nice.

Thanks all. It's a very fragrant bloom, but I'm not certain I like the scent...Not bad, but not pleasant to me.

Me171, thanks for the photo tip! This is a digital camera. Anything I can do about the concentration of light at the base of the plant?

I agree with the light level. Love the background color in your picture, really sets off that gorgeous plant and blooms!
