    Default Re-Bloomers

    Okay, so I didn't get long arching spikes with tons of flowers. Mine seem to like to give me 2 blooms. The Dendrobium flowers are huge, as are the Phal, but the phals flowers aren't right. Let's hope I get better with time.

    Connie, from what I've read, re-blooming phal's on the old spikes typically give smaller flowers. So I'm trying another something I read and cutting finished spikes off at the "knees"....at the base of the plant.....time will tell.

    We cut off all of the spikes when they are done. It is just better for the plant.

    Cheers,
