    Mine is definitely a spike and the buds will be open soon. Perhaps in the next week or so. The buds are unfolding from the spike now.

    It has also, since spiking, popped 2 new roots!

    This is my first experience growing orchids and having a spring hit and all the orchid action that it brings! It is wild watching things and how they develop. Sometimes I am amazed at how fast they grow. While other times I see the same type growth on a similar orchid and it grows much slower.

    And the roots! I have grown more roots since winter than I would have ever thought.

    I have a number of spikes on a number of orchids. Pics coming soon. But, IMO, not enough of my orchids are in spike yet. I am happy for what is!

    Every grower dream is seeing their orchids thrives!!! Seeing new roots, leaves, spikes... especially seeing them flower. It gives great bliss for me, knowing that they are healthy and thriving. And that shows they are liking what we are doing to them.

    My hats off to you 78terp, you are my Idol!!!
