    Talking Onc. stacyii Could this finally be a spike?

    I purchased this as a tiny plant about 4 years ago. It lived in a pot for the first year and hated it. It's been mounted for 3 years now and growing great. I'm hoping this is finally my reward.

    Not sure if it is a spike or not, but it looks promising. Congratulations on the good culture.

    Cheers,

    I'll try to get more pics when I get back home Sunday. No bloom booster yet. I'm going to let the spike get longer. Don't worry I'll know when the time is right.
