When I initially got this plant., I never really expect it to have horizontal banding like an Aech. chantinii. Interestingly the banding become more prominant as the plant mature. Now, after many years of waiting, it finally came into bloom. The inflorescent is somewhat pulled down to the center suggesting certain characteristic like ionantha. But to my surprise, this plant do carry fully erect multispikes of a fasciculata.
A robust growing plant which appreciate good sunlight and plenty of space. Nice coral red inflorescence. I haven't seen the true flower yet to determine it's identity.
