    I guess a watched spike never grows...

    BTW, I was wondering why I'm doing a lot better with bellina than with the plain violacea. I keep them in the same medium (s/h without the reservoir), and so is the humidity (60%), watering schedule (not allowed to dry completely), and light. Yet somehow the bellina thrives while the sumatran violacea sulks and occasionally loses another root. It shows great progress in one month, then suddenly it stalls.
    Any thoughts?

    Hi , Plants are like puppies always one that does not do as well as the others . I have bought Phals. in a flask last time there was at least 60 plus of them some took off and hit blooming size in a short length of time others dragged along , some went out backwards (down hill) I have found my violacea seems to be on a diffrent schedule it is sitting the bellina spiking ..Happy Growing ..

    I'm coming in late on this but if you are still there GiovannaD I would like to know what happened, because to me that looks like a root rather than a spike. Mine does the same thing.
