The Grammatophyllum on the side of the house is learning about my "bloom or burn" policy right now. I explained things to it awhile back and since they didn't spike they are now getting ugly leaves. Interesting to note...one looks like it has a spike growing lately. It could be just another pbulb, but we can hope... Sorry, if it's too stubborn you might want to have the "bloom or burn" talk with it soon.
