Did not think I'd be able to get this guy to bloom due to the light not being strong enough. Then, when watering it yesterday, I noticed this :).

Very nice, thanks! I saw some naturalized in Florida last winter but it's never like seeing them in the jungle. Heading down to Mexico next fall and hope to see a few of the "natives" while there.

Thanks for posting this photo of the spike. I have one and I was curious about the spike.
