This is a discussion on 9 spike Sharry Baby question. within the General Orchid Culture forums, part of the Orchid Culture category; ahahha I am going to have to remember that saying! Originally Posted by King Kjeldz ...

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
Here is an updated pic, the buds are starting to open. Took pic tonight, not my best work!
Fantastic! Great job!

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
