    Excellent!

    My phal bastianii is in spike now. I don't think it has ever bloomed before as I have not found any stumps of expired spikes on it. I think the spike is half the length it will be when the flowers open.

    I have not detected any fragrance on my phal mannaii. I'll have to check again.

    Would that be 'smell-a-vision'?
