This opened for me this morning. Yay! A few days ago I also noticed that I have a second spike just starting to develop on another stalk so I should have some flowers on this plant basically non stop well into spring (maybe with a gap between spikes but we'll see).
Ludisia discolor flower
Here's a picture of the whole plant. It is in a 4" pot and is currently 22" tall from the soil to the top of the bloom stalk (no doubt at all it will pass 2' before it finishes).
I grow it in extremely low light in a north window with no additional lighting. I water it when I think of it and that seems alright, though I never keep it dry for too long. I'm sure it would be happier with better soil and more water but maybe because it gets so little light it isn't as picky about water. I don't know. My room is also usually warm and humid and it hasn't complained about that at all. Actually they're often grown in terrariums because they are well suited to warm, wet and humid conditions. Just, you know, terrariums that are 2' tall or more.
