    Oh, Howard, I am so sorry! Been there, done that! I have had some luck with putting them in water--definitely worth trying.

    if its any consolation you've motivated me to prioritize giving my spike support...

    ...and i also agree with giving a vase of water a try...it'll hold you over until next year...

    I did the same thing last year with my wife's noid Phal. But, I lucked out as it branched out from the break and I had 2 branches of flowers. Of course I lost the three buds on the tip.(I did put the in a vase, but they expired before blooming).

    Too bad but must admit I am glad there are others that repeat mistakes. Thought I was the champion. Guess I have to share the crown! LOL Just kidding. Too bad and hope the blossoms will bloom in water.
