    Wow. That is massive. I can't tell from the picture; but, is the spike tied to a stick or something or does it naturally stick straight up? Nice job.

    xvart.

    No stake involved, sticks up by itself. It's big but not that big. There are bigger specimens at a local garden center in 2-3 gallon pots. One has 10 spikes in it! $50 though. I may have to buy one!

    Not sure which, I know it's a Phaius tankervilliae though.

    then it is not a Bletilla. Bletilla is another genus. That one is Phaius.

    Nice growing. I like that one.
