    Holy cow, they are gonna be huge!! I'm really excited for you. I actually just saw some of these at the botanical garden, and I thought they were exquisite...do they require any unusual care?

    I don't know Kitty. It really looks like an aerial root to me. You sure that martini is not swaying your judgment just a tad?

    ...Well, I think it looks like a very fine spike! I think I can see nodes on it. We need it to be a spike, right Kitty?

    I sobered up long enough to investigate, and by god, it is a spike. It is developing little nodes as we speak. now if i can just keep from smashing into it on my way to the bathroom....we'll be golden.

    Hold the Phones! Everyone stop everything!! Correction. There are TWO spikes on my Brassia. Once again, I totally missed it. The second one is already about six inches high, camoflaged once again. I'll try to get a picture of it.

    Someone asked about special care earlier. I don't know. I repotted mine in moss in a basket, as that is my custom, and I dunk her in the sink once or twice a week, depending on how dry its been. I usually wait to water until the plant is very close to being completely dry, and I water less in the winter. I feed it about once a month. Who knows...seems to be working at the moment.

    two spikes equals one cocktail for this sister!
