    Default Mini Mark Question

    Hi Everyone,
    I have a question about my Mini Mark, i have (2) and both of them have a new leaf just forming, about 1/4". One of them has a spike about 11/2" long. Both plants look very healthy they are potted in bark, moss,etc.
    the phal. with the spikes new leaf is now yellow. My question is has anyone had this experience and has the leaf grown out? Please don't advise me to cut the spike to give the plant more energy to grow, as i said both plants are doing fine,and i am inclined to wait it out. Anyones input would be appreciated.
    Thanks Hank......

    Could you post a photo. That would help us see what's going on.

    Hank, Susan's advice about a photo is a good idea. I believe more people will fee comfortable answering your question if we can see what is happening.

    Cheers,
