    Question Terminal spike on phal cornu-cervi

    Hello to all,
    so with my recent orchid shopping spree i got more questions for experienced grower.
    Here we go, i bought this cornu-cervi red because of it flower color. I did see (clearly) that it has spike from the top of the crown but it didn't ring the bell that time that it terminal spike (just found this term on the web after googling) and its not really good. So is it really true its the end of the mother plant and all is left just hope for keiki?!

    Normally this plant won't grow at the terminal end any more, but keikis will soon appear.

    if the Phal is healthy, it would produce keiki., we would have to be very patient in this situation. May be you can cheer the plant when you water it every time
