    I can't tell by your picture what type of orchid you have. We would need that info to comment on flower spike. I wouldn't worry about the root

    The roots will do as they wish -- including driving you crazy. heh

    Ron is quite correct ... we need to know what type of orchid it is that you are showing us. That growth could be a flower spike or a new pb.

    Maybe this is a cymbidium back bulb. Not a flower spike - that would be a miracle. Sorry to disappoint you. Just nurture that new growth, and some small number of years down the line, the plant can be strong enought to flower for you.

    Geoff, so jaded! Rolling on the floor laughing! (ROLF) So true! But we still need a larger picture, or name of the plant.
