    Cool All buds in bloom... but one!

    I've got about 7 flowers in bloom on my phal - and my goodness I had forgotten how beautiful it was - but there's one little bud that hasn't changed size for a good month, and is in second to last place down the spike... I just can't get it to bloom! Is this little guy a lost cause or should I just be patient?

    I agree with BD, be patient and while you wait I'd love to see a pic of your flowers.

    I figured it would just take time - that's pretty much what orchids seems to need. I mean, I heard it would be super difficult to take care of one, etc., but it's never really been difficult, but has just taken time.

    Anyway, here's a picture of it!


    I looked up the colour pattern and found out it's called an Elegant Harlequin. Haha, I was pretty proud of myself for that little discovery.
