Mom Phal and I thank you, Bruce! :>) Seriously, though, what causes an orchid to do this, especially after it has spiked and bloomed "normally" at least twice in the past.....once at the big-box store where I bought it, and once under my care about 1 1/2 yrs. ago? If this is a genetic thing, why the sudden change in Mom's growth habit? I still can't help but wonder if there's something I should change as I care for it in the future. ???
I would appreciate your thoughts.
