so this is just a semi annual update- if you go to post 14 in this thread you see the plant as i got it... there is an old pbulb in that picture that is about 14" long and has a distinct bend at the top...if you look at the middle of this picture you can see that same pbulb...heh heh heh

Maybe just skip the uppotting... it'll produce birds-nest roots once it runs out of room in the pot. Just don't ever move, you certainly won't be able to take it anyplace else. Nobody repots in nature, they just ramble.

It's definitely a beast. And very cool that you've done so well with it. Hopefully some spikes will appear before too long.
