    A couple of things in spike right now, but here's the one that really gets me. I got this mini-phrag in Feb last year with 1 growth; it now has 3 and is fixin' to bloom for the first time. Unfortunately, I will be leaving town soon for an extended business trip, and fear I may miss it's blooming. My DH will have to take a pic for me if that happens!

    I must be the only person this summer without a single spike. Either I have a bunch of fall/winter bloomers or I'm doing something way wrong.

    miller's oncidium sharry baby looks incredible! mine's putting out one spike and i'm going mad waiting for it to bloom. although it did bloom for me back in february, so i can't complain. but it is taking forever!!!!!!! and i keep trying to feed it, and should probably lay off the fertilizer. i'm getting burned tips!!!!

    I feel your pain, mine put out 8 spikes at one time then sent out the 9th. I don't see any buds on any of them and its been months! Here are some pics of my others; the Gilded Urchin is having some bud blast, 4 of them. The Onc Heaven scent has only blasted one so far. The Doritis Pulcherrima has a nice spice, sorry about the picture sucking. Tried to get a better pic of the sharry baby but I guess my 45 minute photography class did not pay off!

    ok, here goes, i have my sharry baby, an epidendrum that i believe will be the tiny purple flowered one (from how the leaves grow up, not out) that i bought last summer, and a phal i've had for about a year that is finally spiking again, it will have yellow/orange flowers. i also have a dendrobium kingianum, but th it is just starting and hard to photograph, and a vanda paki that *i think* is starting 2 spikes, so no picture yet until i'm certain, but that's it in the pic with the epi.
