    Lightbulb a rewarding autumn... 3 flower spikes...

    Hi... Its been a while since the last time I posted something... I'm a little bit busy preparing for the M.s entrance exam... Anyway... Its the last month of fall here in Iran and we're preparing for a freezing winter... The windowsill I'm keeping my orchids must have become a little cold. Looks like my largest phal has had her cold period and rewarded me with a tiny, fast growing flower spike... Wow!... Thats so exciting because all my plants get pollinated after receiving and recover slowly... This baby had 4 seedpods last year but now has a flower spike and another strange bump coming up just from the second leaf's base... Any ideas?...
    And for the most exciting part, the plant's keiki, which now has 2 big leaves, is sending up a flower spike too!... I guess it'll have around 2-3 flowers but its like keiki to flower in less than 9 months!...
