Hello! I've posted a picture of an orchid I purchased about a year ago. It didn't have a spike when I got it.
Is this the beginning of a flower spike or just another root growing out?
I have spiked out alot of phals in the last couple years....that my friend is a spike you are growing! Great job...now with patience it'll flower in a couple months.
Okay, great! Thanks for the replies! I got this orchid one day at at the grocery store in really poor condition (it was on sale for $5). I re-potted/fertilized and it seems to be doing well now.
I'll post photos of it in bloom.
i'll say it again. GO SPIKE GO!
Congratulations on your good care and culture. Your close-up picture is very good as well.
Spikes are always fun!
You must be thrilled!
