    I kept the pot the same and i hope it comes back like in Angela's experience. But it is easier to manage for now. ~sigh~

    cheers,

    Thanks for the words of encouragement folks. I'm so mad at myself! On the upside, I got a chance to check out the roots and make sure they're still doing well (they are!) and kind of resituate the plant since it was badly leaning to one side. Now it's a bit more centered and upright. Hopefully it will put out more growths soon, it hasn't been doing much since it put up this growth - which kind of looked like it could have been a spike. It sort of halted once the growth got to a decent size. I'm still wondering why.

    Ali; Boy do I have you beat in the lets knock off or accidentally pull out the new growth on the orchid department! On a Odontocidium I was pulling out a dead sheath and took a new growth with it. It has two other new growths, but three is better. On a Encyclia I was again removing a old sheath and I knocked off a newly emerging growth. A month later I see two new growths (one coming up from the offended P-bulb. So you see I am really bad. I must learn to not spontaneously clean up an orchid just because it has dry, dead sheaths around it..........................The consolation is that I'm sure they'll grow back and who's to say that they don't decide they need to grow a little quicker to make up for the attack? Bruce I'm sorry about your Bird of Paradise, but I bet it comes back. From what I know of them there pretty tough plants and the odds are in your favor. AL

    i think the zygo will do fine. and bd's bird of paradise as well. the duplex next to my building was sold a few years ago, and the new owners did everything they could think of to kill off a huge patch in the front yard. they cut it to the ground several times, never watered it and who knows what else. they gave up. the plant is as lush and covered with flowers as it ever was.

    I agree with Coeruleo, one you got the "Birds" you got 'em, and worse if you put them in the ground.
