Hi Lauw:

No, it hasn't bloomed.  It was a little joke.  I picked a white flower from
O. purpurea and put it in the O. palmifrons because everyone was complaining
that it never bloomed!!  I have two different collections, but I still think
both are the same commercial one and that it is a non-blooming clone, like
O. melanosticta 'Ken Aslet'.  I have two other clones of O. melanosticta
that bloom very well.
