    Default Aerial Root or Spike?

    Hi,

    Congratulations on your spikes. I'm still trying to figure out the difference between an aerial root and what hopefully might be a spike.

    Might one of these be a spike?

    Would appreciate some guidance.

    Thanks.

    Romulus

    Romulus, I only see very healthy new roots growing now. Your phal looks healthy and I believe it will bloom for you soon!

    Yes, just roots, but Phals start to spike this time of year.
