    Hi Carol

    I got this plant in bloom in May and after the bloom faded I put it outside in the garden in light shadow and that's all I did. Just continued watering and feeding as usual and that's it. She's also growing a new growth that's quite big already.

    I can't take credit for the spike. I bought it in bloom in May. The only thing I did was not cutting the spike when it was done blooming. The vendor had told me it would rebloom from the same spike. I have it outside in bright shadow in a net pot with bark and leca. Regular watering and feeding and that's all.
