    I, too, am looking forward to a photo when it is in full bloom - nice one BD!!
    Good eye, Sarah! It does have a keike. After the plant blooms and I make sure that it is actually a hieroglyphica, I will put the keike up for trade on Orchid-Bids. It needs to grow a bit more roots still and since I have not bloomed this plant yet, I want to be certain the tag is correct.

    Cheers!

    Okay, can anyone tell me how long this hieroglyphia takes to bloom? It has been in spike 4-ever! It has 10 spikes and they all have the tiny little beginnings of buds on them, but my other phals are growing spikes and budding out from almost nothing and there seems to be no change in the Phal. hieroglyphia. I repotted it and everything is healthy. It has good color, gets plenty of water and fert and light. What gives? I am ready to see some blooms.
    Any thoughts?

    Cheers,
    BD

    Can't speak from experience with the species - I did get a seedling, but it has some growing to do.

    I'd wonder if the 10 spikes might split off the plant's energy and each would progess slower accordingly. I do know that repotting can set back spike and flower development. I got some divisions from a friend this summer, and I repotted them once I got home. Probably more important than the repotting was the change in growing conditions. Mine bloomed two months after hers did - from the same plant.

    Patience, Grasshoppa!

    Yes--pictures!
    Hah! You're lucky. The hiero I got was in HORRIBLE shape when it arrived. (got a reufund on this one) It is now in intensive care (stainless bowl with lava and water in the bottom and a semi closed tent of plastic over the top). The structure of the leaves is holding up so there is hope.

    BUT EIGHT SPIKES!!! For heaven's sake, that sounds HUGE.

    EDIT

    !) SPIKES!!! and a keiki too, oh my gosh. (where is that jealous smilie at????)

    My Catts usually go for a good month or more - there's hope, Diane!

    I am still waiting for buds and blooms from this guy. It seems to just keep growing spikes. I have had this in spike since Sept 06. Any suggestions?

    I am about ready to cut off most of the spikes and see if that will cause at least one to go on and bloom already!
