Great job Carrie!!
What do you have it potted in, sphag? I have mine in fine bark mix but the p-bulbs are very shriveled and for some reason my Onc. leaves (on all Oncs I have) are pleated indicating lack of humidity but no other plants seem to be affected....

That's weird, right after posting here earlier today I walked over to my Sharry Baby to check the pleated leaves and look at that a spike got caught on the pleat (horizonal on the leaf) and got stuck and all bend. What are the odds....
Wow! must be the year for stuck spikes LOL I hope your spike pulls through and you get lovely flowers
Congrats Carrie, I am very sure that you will be rewarded with a beautiful bloom! And yes, talking abt bloom, at this stage if we were to apply flowering fertiliser, will it help to expedite it and gives us more flowers?
Here's my spike that was stuck before, it appears to have recovered nicely.
Your spike looks great Phyrex I hope it develops well for you, and I am cluesless with fertilising I gave mine some bloom boost at a weak strengh a couple of days ago.
Yippie. It's so gratifying when something like that happens. Congrats. Can't wait to see the blooms.
