Peristeria elata, the inflorescence of my largest plant

These are photos of the inflorescence of my largest and most vigorous plant of Peristeria elata.  A well grown plant can produce a big inflorescence that can have many flowers open at the same time.   The largest plants can produce two inflorescences at the same time. Unfortunately the weight of the flowers tilted the inflorescence to one side so the display is not as pleasing as it could be.  So my recomendation is to use a stake to keep the inflorescence perfectly vertical, it should be placed before any of the flowers open.

Linda, parece uma pombinha branca olhando para o ninho.
