I bought this plant in 2008/9. It had just finished flowering and only had the dead spike and a few pups on it. Until now nothing much happened. It grew and seemed happy but no flower spike until the present. Only one of the 4 pups is in spike. I don't know how long I will have to wait for the rest to flower.

Any ideas as to a name?

Robin, thanks. Maybe an easy grower for everyone else, but not me. My original plant bought in flower, gave me 5 pups. This is the first one in flower. The others are still showing nothing!

Best wishes,

Conrad
