That's an impressive plant - it's quite a slow grower. Always nice to have a few flowers at this time of year,

Thanks for the comments all.

According to my records I have had it for 15 years and was last re-potted in 2011!!!
It will be moving into a slightly bigger home once it has finished flowering.
