    I too have a 9-spiker...she's outside all the time until most of the blooms are open, then I bring her in to enjoy the perfume. The plant has at least quadrupled since I bought her at an orchid show about 4 years ago. She is now in a 10-inch pot, and every year there are more spikes. I'm hoping for 11 next year!

    Well I am hoping for more next year. I am going to move mine to a Vanda basket once the blooms die. Hoping it likes that.

    Good luck. Mine is planted in a big old clay pot--she seems to love it there, so I don't know when I will repot; I don't dare, for fear of breaking the spell! My other half said he would size a pic so I can post it, but it's raining now so I'll wait for sun...

    Its is time for me to repot since it is growing out of the 8" pot. I will take a chance on the basket, if it does not seem happy I will move it to a pot

    Wow! Those 9 spikes are amazing. I was feeling proud when I spotted 2 spikes on my Sharry Baby. Now I feel depressed!!

    You've definitely captured the great size of your Sharry Baby in your latest photograph. Maybe a bit of a close up as to the beauty later? AL
