    Default First earned spike!!

    This is a pic of my first earned phal spike. I am sooooooo excited!! I have no idea what the bloom will look like (I'm sure I still have quite some time before I find out...) because it was a discount plant and out of bloom when I bought it and it's a NOID. Just thought I'd share my excitement

    Trisha, good job ! I grow most of my catts. outside. I grow phal. and paph. inside under lights. I have been able to get the outdoor plants to bloom. I still haven't managed to get a phal to spike yet ? I most likely mess with them to much. Make sure you post when this Noid blooms. Have Fun,Rich
