    Thanks Cin and Gin, your farmari and Griff. are gorgeous. The spike gets very fat now, I think this one will make it. Hopefully, I will get more spikes, I saw some other spike nodes were bulging out also.

    Sorry Qing I just saw your post , I water as usual , if hot maybe a little more , kind of depends on what it is potted in , mine are in baskets they dry out fast .. I am happy you have more spikes on the way the blooms on mine last about a week , they do close at night first time I saw that I thought .. Gin

    OK, the spike finally made its way to bloom. It only has 10 flowers but there is a second spike. I hope the second one will produce more flowers.
