    Default Spikes everywhere in my Orchid room:)

    We've been having a very mild winter this season, except for a period in last Nov when we had a bit of cold which I assume prompted all these spikes. I was also away for about a month and when I came back I was so happy with all the orchid activity
    I have posted a few pics:

    1- Yellow onc with spike
    2- noid phal with two spikes one of which is on a keiki(I assume I should wait to remove the keiki)
    3- noid Phal with two spikes. This is a very nice one with good roots (white blooms)
    4- another Phal in spike- will give yellow blooms

    You are so lucky! We had an historically cold winter here in Florida. My poor orchids are looking the worse for wear, since I had to keep them inside for almost a month due to overnight temps in the upper 20's-low 30's (F). They are very happy outdoors, and miserable indoors--probably since I am not set up at ALL! Florida is NOT supposed to be cold. LOL
    I can't wait to see the bloom pics! congrats on all the spikes!
