More likely I will be extremely jealous when you have cyms spiking and mine are in revolt from too-warm temps and/or too little light - my monster cym lives outside in the shade and is learning to be a southerner - but we'll see if the drop i temp in October will actually set spikes - lots of new growth though.
    hehe, already done! Weather has been way too warm for this time of the year, and the cymbs have spiked already. Its now a case of getting them to re-spike in time for the spring show! Also, I have one in spike right now, and its a first flowered too, but a few nights ago a severe frost nipped it, the buds look terrible, but i want to see the colour! Orchids can amaze, but also dissapoint.

    I know, I know - I'm ready for less than success, but it's the hope that's killing me - this cym is the most gorgeous pink-salmon color - if it ever blooms again...
