I agree that itis a longifolia or very close. If longifolia they should of course be given more space. No engleria I have ever seen looks quite like these.

The Saxy season hasn't ended yet. S. fortuneii is still in bloom today - a very nice, dry, sunny and "warm" day +15C!

Great stuff Maggi, wish I spoke Dutch
There is a pic of a plant called S.‘Feuerworks’
posted by Frankie Wulleman
It looks like a x paulinae maybe 'Paula' or 'Kolbiana'
do any of our Dutch friends have any info on this name?
or anyone for that matter, it's not a sax name I have come
across before
