    Default Dyakia hendersoniana spike won't flower! How come?

    Hello folks!

    Question about my little Dyakia hendersoniana. I purchased it about 2 months ago...it had two beautiful spikes at the time and the little guy looked healthy and robust.

    Well, two months later it looks exactly the same! The spikes still look beautiful, the plant looks healthy and robust still.... But the spikes have not budged! Even slightly! It looks like the same exact plant. I would have thought that the spikes would have made a little progress by now—or even would have declined had it not liked its new home.

    Anyone have experience with these and can offer some advice? Do they usually take a while to bloom, am I just being impatient?

    It's in a West exposure shaded from afternoon hot sun but receives a good deal of light generally 1500-2000 foot candles throughout the day—I don't think that's the issue. I am also watering as it approaches dryness so I don't think that's the cause either. I'm stumped!

    Any advice?

    Thanks!

    I recently got this little mini and it was mounted on a piece of wood without any medium. It also has a nice spice with no activity. I'm not sure if I should dunk the entire plant in water. I've been hesitant to wet the spike. Any suggestions?

    I have this plant also. It took a VERY LONG time for the spike to flower. Don't worry if the plant is healthy it will eventually flower.
