    I know what you mean; for us new growers every shoot, every growth, and certainly every SPIKE is thrilling! Keep up the good work and we expect pictures!

    Congratulations.
    Photo reminds me of when i noticed my firet Phrag bloom.
    The light shining through the window gives you a peek of the buds to come.
    The spikes can grow very fast @ this early stage , over 1" a day for mine is not uncommon for my big lads.

    Default Phrag. China Dragon cool news!

    I finally get it. I see what's happening. I never looked closely enough at the inside most leaves. They thin down inside to be the size of a flower stem! They curve outward to make the protective shape of a bud. I GET IT! AND I can see my flower bud inside!!!!
    I'm scared to make this post because who knows if I will give it the care it needs to open for me. I have so little faith. But HOW COOL....

    Check it out lol. Don't be jaded seasoned growers. Get excited with me seeing it for the first time haha
