The flower spike should normally be out of the leaves, I think. But I chose this plant because there is some slight pink colouring in the flowers. They are a really different shape to the regular 'Neo' flower... very little spur, and very wide flower segments, give the flower a much rounder shape.

I read somewhere that they do grow down low like that, not high above the foliage.

Be fun to see how they bloom next time!

Thanks, guys! I haven't seen this one bloom before - but Ramon has one too, so maybe he can tell us what his blooms like as well. I have seen other plants of this with flowers on slighty longer spikes. With this one, it looks as if all three flowers are are coming directly out of the leaves - you can't even see the main stem of the spike.
