    Default Cymbidium spikes

    This came from my Grandmother's collection about 5 or 6 years ago. It has never spiked/bloomed for me. Hope I'm not jinxing it by posting pictures of its first two spikes (under my care). I'm somewhat superstitious about these things. LOL

    Keep them out of drafts! My 4th spike got some cold and lost some buds too.

    I'm keeping it exactly where it is and under the same conditions. If it was happy enough to send spikes out like this, then I'm not changing anything. LOL

    That includes smashing some of its leaves every time someone opens and closes the door its next to. LOL
