    For the psychopsis it can be quite a long time, depending on which one it is. How long is the spike?

    I haven't seen a branch on any Den. bigibbum, but suppose it is possible.

    As for Psychopsis papillio, I have seen spikes almost 3 feet tall before producing a bud. You have a great plant there!

    if it not bigibbum then can you ID it for me. The plant is about 6 inches tall. you can see the actual plant at the beginning of thread. I also include the bloom of the plant. The white color on the flower is water damage.
