    I was just wondering if anyone knows how soon the second stock should follow as far as blooming as the first and finished stock? Am I not getting something right? Do i need to drop the temp lower at night??? As this is something im hearing....Wishful thinking but, i would love to see this second stock get more buds...any education for me?

    There really is no way to tell how fast they will develop or if at the same time. I have some types that bloom nearly all the flowers at once, while others bloom a few at a time. I think it tends to be the plants normal habits and how often and how much you fertilize them.

    I don't understand what you mean by stock ? Are you talking about a second flower stem ( which we always call flower spikes) from the same bulb ?Or do you mean another bulb ? Whatever you mean, there is no way of increasing the number of buds and flowers on any one stem (spike) except by growing iut better in the future.
    And that is exactly what we are all trying to do with all our orchids !

    Hmm...curious to me is there is clearly more wrong information than correct. I have read that on pbulb orchids the spike is called a stock. And that Phals are called spikes. I have read more than several websites that have used both words but I'm glad I've been told. The last thing I need is for someone to think I'm worse an amateur than I already am. I own a Zygo and the info I read said nothing but the words using "stock" I've always called my Phals stems spikes so thank you for
    clarifying the difference and that stock isn't a term at all.
    The spike in question is on the other bulb. There are 2 tiny buds on top the spike so I was hoping I could make it grow more than what's already in plain view. Just curious of what's possible.
