    Default Keikis or spikes?

    Can anyone tell me if there are any keikis in these pics or is it too early to tell? There are some obvious spikes but I'm not sure about the remainder...

    The short one with the pudgy bottom may be a keikei, and the long skinny one looks like a spike...the other's are way too short to tell. Good Luck...when they start getting bigger you'll have to update with more pics.

    I certainly will post more pics! The Tying Shin 'Cupid' has a spike - 2nd pic from the bottom - so more flowers will be more than welcome!

    Yes, the long one looks like a spike to me too. Like Connie said, let them grow a bit more and they will reveal themselves.
