This is only the second spike in 20 years for this plant which has been divided into many pots over the years. Supposedly from South America. The leaves have diagonal ridges underneath as you might see.

Hi Gonzer, so to give us a clue would think your plant is most likely a specie, if direct from South America ? so assume Brazil.

Hi everyone.

Gonz. - I was trying to think "outside the square"; maybe a natural hybrid or even a bi-generic such as xPortmea made in habitat by "Mother Nature".

Have you tried the site below to see if they can ID it for you?

All the best, Nev.
