Thanks Kasy!
It's been the highlight of the year so far for me, made all the sweeter because I'd failed so miserably before!

It's a must have plant from now on Jeanette!
Now here's the big news - new leaves are coming up to one side of the spent flower stem, effectively redefining the centre line of the plant! Is there a chance that this bulb may produce another flower stem??
