    Gee, you "just found" it? Man, I know EXACTLY which plants are in spike and flowering.

    Hmmmmm, maybe that is why they take so long to bloom?

    Tindo, I'm just jealous... mine's in spike but I can't imagine having a couple of spikes and a couple of flowers on a spike and..... *sigh*
    But to be unlike my pessimistic self, at LEAST I'm getting spikes on my own LOL!!! YAY!!!

    Tik, now that I look upon it, I do see the bunny ears. Hehe.
    I knew the plant was in spike, its just that I didn't get to see it in the process of opening. So I just sort of found it in bloom.
    Are you kidding me! I watch my plants like a hawk. I know exactly who is in spike. Except for my Oncidium 'Sharry Baby' Which managed to grow a 6" spike without me noticing. But now its at 17"! Woo-hoo!!!
    Anyway, this little Phal has quickly become one of my favorite of Phals. And to think I started liking Phals only for their moth like flowers. Now I like bunny ears. I don't think the leaf span on this one gets much larger, I've read that the plant becomes decidous in drier conditions, so I'm keeping it in a vivarium to see if it will grow more leaves rather than just replace old ones.
    I got this plant in the summer (I can't remember what month though, Tik, do you remember?
    Thanks all!
