This is a discussion on Oncidium Sweet Sugar in spike after a very long time... within the **NOT IN BLOOM** All Genera forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; Originally Posted by Susie11 I have a sweet sugar and I bought it in spike. ...
Yes Connie, that is what I meant. It is almost like a guide for the spike to follow so that it emerges in the right place. If you look at two of my new pbulbs on my sweet sugar on one you can clearly see a groove almost which is where the new spike will emerge from and the other pbulb there is no grove so this one will not produce a spike
Pbulb with a groove for new spike to emerge from
This one is also on the same plant but this pbulb does not have any groove along the edge so this one is not a flower producing pbulb
This becomes more noticeable the bigger they get but it is a clear indictation of which bulbs are spike producing and which ones are not.
Ohh....very good to know! I wonder why I've not heard of that before? I will be checking out my bulbs now...lol. Thank you!
Thank you. I'm going to check on my p-bulbs right now.
Connie...i show your mount to my husband and told him to bring me home if he found the wood like yours,can't wait to see when it's bloom.i love mounting orchid
Unfortunately it looks like the spike is aborting. There may be a branch starting, but it looks like something ate the other buds off the spike. I hope the spike will go ahead and make some new ones...we shall see.
Mine has made new spikes where old ones were damaged or broken off. They are pretty sturdy little plants once established. Good luck, and nice mount.
