    Just leave it in its spot so the spike doesnt twist with changing light and be prepared to wait even longer. They can sometimes take forever to mature. Then, sit back and enjoy.

    Orchids teach us patience. (Regardless if we like it or not. hahaha) Sit back, Relax, and enjoy.

    This is where you put on the "Anticipation" song. Waiting for buds and spikes to develp is most definitely good for learning patience!
