Nice shot of the shoot.

Should this be considered "in flower"? or just shooting up?

flower stem developing; not in flower yet (bit hard to say with this parasitic orchid because the only tissue above soil are the sexual parts ie flowers...)

Thanks Waltraud. This sighting is flagged as "in flower" which is influencing the new calendar display on its species page: Should I remove the in flower flag for this sighting? I think I should. I.e. this species doesn't actually "flower" in October.

This is still quite some way off flowering which normally doesn't occur until December, so the "in flower" flag should definitely be removed.

Thanks Tony, I've just removed it now. The charts will regenerate overnight as they update once every 24 hrs.
