    Default Phal. javanica-It Won't be Long Now

    Phal. javanica getting ready to pop .



    If you are wondering what the white thing is, javanica is notorious for shoving spikes down in the medium if it is in a pot. I have been using pieces of styrofoam peanuts to keep the spikes out of the medium. There is another spike with 2 buds coming as well .
