About time the darned thing bloomed again

It's been what, a whole 3 months since I last had a bloom on it to show? Although this time it was my fault -- snapped two successive spikes as I tried to guide them into a better growing position (they were insisting one growing in directions that simply wouldn't work ... like back through the glass of the tank) finally had one make it. Only got one flower this time but it displayed well. Didn't even remove it from the terr to take the pic.

That is just so awsome! I would have gone into a deep depression if I had broken one spike! Just kidding.....

Very pretty! I just bought one of these at the WOC. It's only two bulbs so it'll obviously be some time before I see the pretty blooms. Are they good growers or sloooooow?

Sheila, mine bloomed w/ 1 pb and 1 backbulb, so maybe it won't be too long. Whitecat8
